IAR Systems: IAR Embedded Workbench is a Featured IDE for Freescale Kinetis Software Development Kit

IAR Systems (STO:IARB)

Freescale Technology Forum—April 10, 2014—IAR Systems®, the world’s leading supplier of software tools for developing embedded systems applications, today announced that its high-performance toolchain, IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM®, has been selected by Freescale as a featured integrated development environment for the next generation of Kinetis microcontrollers (MCUs). IAR Systems and Freescale share an effective history, providing designers with the tools to simplify development and to harness the advantages of the Kinetis MCU portfolio.

“The Kinetis software development kit (SDK) is an extensive suite of robust peripheral drivers, stacks and middleware designed to accelerate application development on any Kinetis MCU. The addition of Processor Expert technology for software and board support configuration provides unmatched ease of use and flexibility”, says JC Bodet, Director of Freescale’s Microcontroller Software and Services. “We are very excited about IAR Systems continuing their industry-leading Kinetis MCU support as we launch the Kinetis SDK.”

Since the introduction of Kinetis microcontrollers, IAR Systems has delivered the broadest coverage of Freescale’s portfolio of solutions based on ARM Cortex® cores including full integration with Processor Expert software and MQX™ kernel awareness debugging. IAR Embedded Workbench is now equipped with a complete migration manual to facilitate a smooth transition for any customers wishing to migrate from CodeWarrior Developer Studio for microcontrollers to IAR Embedded Workbench. The migration support is built directly into IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM, allowing Kinetis SDK users to easily take advantage of IAR Systems’ powerful, reliable IDE.

“IAR Systems leads the way in tool reliability, optimization, and ease of use,” says Stefan Skarin, CEO of IAR Systems. “Our established relationship with Freescale and our product integration continue to provide embedded designers with efficient tools for peak results with the powerful Kinetis MCUs.”

IAR Systems is offering competitive upgrade pricing to qualified CodeWarrior Developer Studio for microcontrollers licensees. For further information about the offer, and the benefits of developing with IAR Embedded Workbench, visit www.iar.com/freescale/migrate.

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
We’re no longer looking to the future for the IoT wave. It’s no longer a distant dream but a reality that has arrived. It’s now time to make sure the industry is in alignment to meet the IoT growing pains – cooperate and collaborate as well as innovate.

The deep industry expertise be...
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...
The Internet of Everything (IoE) brings together people, process, data and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before – transforming information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right way. In their session at Big Data Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positi...
