The ARM Cortex-M7 core is a new member of the energy-efficient 32-bit Cortex-M processor family. The Cortex-M7’s combination of high performance and digital signal control functionality enables microcontroller manufacturers to target highly demanding embedded applications while keeping development costs as low as possible. Expected end uses include smart control systems employed in a range of applications such as motor control devices, industrial automation, the Internet of Things, advanced audio, image processing and a variety of connected vehicle applications.“IAR Systems has continued their pattern of rapid availability of IAR Embedded Workbench for new ARM cores with support for the ARM Cortex-M7 processor core,” says Richard York, Vice President, Embedded Marketing, ARM. “Optimizing their compiler to make best use of the new ARM Cortex-M7 instruction set will help to enable the next generation of compelling products.”
“IAR Systems has a strong commitment to the current and future roadmap of ARM and we are always early adopters of their latest technology,” says Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems. “Our complete compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench is known for high performance and ease of use, and provides the industry’s broadest device support thanks to our powerful ecosystem of partners. With support for the new ARM Cortex-M7 processor, we are further strengthening our market position as the leading provider of development tools for ARM.”
