IAR Systems® today introduces an updated version of its embedded development tools IAR Embedded Workbench® for Renesas RL78. The version includes several new features which further enhance and simplify development of applications based on Renesas low-power RL78 microcontrollers.
In version 1.40 of the complete and high-performance toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for RL78, support for the C++ feature multiple inheritance is added. This allows developers to define classes based on multiple parents and inherit characteristics and features from them. With support for the __huge data memory attribute, it’s possible to handle more than 64Kbytes of contiguous data. For example, this enables indexing of an array with a larger size than 64 Kbytes.
To make it possible to handle really large integer values, the C99 data type long long is introduced in this version. The long long data type stores extended size integer values as 64-bit and is useful in for example metering applications.
Features to further simplify development of Renesas RL78 include functionality to invoke external analyzers for project files, which is often used as an interface to static analysis tools like PC-lint. Additional integration with external tools is the added custom argument variables which can be used in IAR Embedded Workbench for RL78 when sending arguments to an external build tool.
IAR Systems is the only tool vendor that supports the entire microcontroller portfolio from Renesas, and the company was the first one to offer support for RL78. IAR Systems continuously adds support for new Renesas devices and several are added in this version. Learn more about IAR Embedded Workbench for RL78 at www.iar.com/ewrl78.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
