Development Tool Supports STM8 Microcontrollers

IAR Systems has announced that IAR Embedded Workbench is now available for ST Microelectronics' STM8 microcontrollers. This support for the STM8 range extends the support already available for the ARM Cortex-M3-based STM32 range of microcontrollers. The consistent tool chain for STM8 and STM32 microcontrollers allows developers to use the same tools for developing embedded software across both architectures.

A common user interface and a single naming convention of embedded specific language extensions make switching between the 8-bit target and the 32-bit target an easier, quicker and more reliable task, allowing developers to focus on application development instead of learning new tools. IAR Embedded Workbench for STM8 offers a set of embedded development tools for applications employing the STM8 platform.

It supports all STM8 devices across the STM8A, STM8L and STM8S ranges. IAR Embedded Workbench for STM8 includes a project manager, editor, build tools and debugger in a tightly integrated development environment. In a continuous workflow, users can create source files and projects, build applications and debug them in real time on hardware or in the simulator. Real-time on-chip debugging is available through the ST-Link and STice debug probes available from ST Microelectronics.

Debug features including performance analysis through function profiling and code coverage utilities, plus exact execution control using complex code and data breakpoints, saves project time. In addition to device-specific support with configuration files for all STM8 devices, many ready-made example projects are available in IAR Embedded Workbench for STM8. Development platforms from ST Microelectronics, such as the Discovery board and various evaluation boards, are also supported with examples.
