State machine design, test and implementation tools

IAR visualSTATE is a set of highly sophisticated and easy-to-use development tools for designing, testing and implementing embedded applications based on state machines.

It provides advanced verification and validation utilities and generates very compact C/C++ code that is 100% consistent with your system design. In addition, the new and revolutionizing integration with IAR Embedded Workbench, a fully integrated C/C++ compiler and debugger toolset, enables true state machine debugging on hardware—get direct graphical feedback on various levels of detail.

Key features

  • Completely integrated development environment including a graphical designer, test tools, a code generator, and a documentation facility.
  • Graphical state machine design based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) state machine subset
  • Formal verification of the design model to find unwanted properties in the design, like dead-ends or unreachable states etc.
  • Test and validation tools to ensure at an early stage of design that the application behaves as expected, even before the hardware exists.
  • Automatic code generation providing very compact C/C++ code, 100% compliant with the design.
  • Automatic documentation generation with comprehensive information.
  • Tightly integrated with IAR Embedded Workbench, ready-made project examples for various microcontrollers and evaluation boards

Benefits of model-driven design

  • Design an embedded application by drawing objects, events, actions etc, using the powerful notation of hierarchical UML state charts and state machines.
  • Discuss the design and exchange ideas with others thanks to the model-driven design approach and the graphical design representation.
  • Simulate and visualize your application to find mistakes early in the design cycle.
  • Verify the logical consistency of your designs run-time model with the extremely powerful formal verificator.
  • Perform extensive tests continuously and iteratively throughout your development: validation of the state machine behavior, regression testing and automatic test coverage reporting.
  • Use the C-SPY® extension to do high-level debugging on hardware with feedback in the design domain, instead of fighting with low level implementation details.
  • Automatically generate error-free micro-tight C/C++ code that is 100% consistent with your design.
  • Easily add new functionality to an existing application as market requirements change.
  • Maintain an existing application thanks to the accurate, structured documentation that is always in-sync with the final design

  • Internet Explorer 6 or higher
  • A Pentium processor with at least 256 Mbytes of RAM and 200 Mbytes of free disk space
