Future Electronics Invites Developers to Qualify for Embedded Workbench Promotion from Renesas and IAR

Montreal, Canada – July 01, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is encouraging developers to take advantage of a beneficial Embedded Workbench Promotion being offered by Renesas and IAR.

RX and RL78 MCUs from Renesas and development tools from IAR are excellent choices for developers of embedded projects on a standard platform, enabling them to reuse their development environment regardless of the MCU selected. The Embedded Workbench Promotion from Renesas and IAR allows developers to take advantage of the latest, most effective microcontrollers without having to change development tools.

The “Standardize Now” offer by Renesas enables embedded developers designing with Renesas’s flagship RX or RL78 MCUs to get one free license for Embedded Workbench, the popular C/C++ compiler and debugger tool suite from IAR.

By standardizing on IAR, the same tool and development environment can be used, whatever the microcontroller. With the same powerful IDE, developers will be able to unleash the performance of the Renesas RX 32-bit MCU and take advantage of the full features of Renesas’s true low power RL78 devices.

This offer means current Renesas MCU users can utilize Renesas’s latest technology embedded in the RX and RL MCUs with no additional investment, thus leveraging previous developments with other Renesas MCUs. IAR supports all Renesas MCUs, and the same suite of development tools can be used across all Renesas developments, even those based on older MCUs.

For developers new to Renesas, this offer enables them to benefit from Renesas products and support without disrupting current developments. IAR supports all major CPU architectures, and the same tool can be used on current designs as well as on the new and exciting Renesas RX and RL78 families.

The promotion is only valid in the Americas (North America, South America and Central America). The customer project must use a Renesas RX or RL78 MCU product and it must be used in a commercial application.

Renesas Electronics Corporation is the world’s number one supplier of microcontrollers and a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions including microcontrollers, SoC solutions, and a broad range of analog and power devices.

IAR Systems is the world’s leading independent provider of software for programming of processors in embedded systems. The software is used by around 20,000 large and small corporations to develop products based on 8-, 16- and 32-bit processors, mainly in the areas of industrial automation, medical devices, consumer electronics and the automotive industry.
