IAR Systems, a supplier of software tools and services for embedded development, recently announced the availability of a certified edition of its development toolchain for RISC-V. The functional safety edition of IAR Embedded Workbench for RISC-V is certified by:
- TÜV SÜD, according to the requirements of IEC 61508, the international umbrella standard for functional safety
- The ISO 26262 for automotive safety-related systems
- The international standard IEC 62304, which specifies the lifecycle requirements for the development of medical software and software within medical devices
- The European railway standards EN 50128 and EN 50657
- The IEC 60730 for Household Appliances and the IEC 61511 for Process Industry
- The ISO 13849 and IEC 62061 for Machinery Control Systems and ISO 25119 for Agriculture and Forestry
Functional safety is one of the most important features in many embedded systems and companies must consider development tools as an integral part of the system certification. The proof of compliance for the tools increases cost and time of development.
To solve this problem, IAR Systems provides certified editions of the complete compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench. The tests performed and quality assurance measures implemented by IAR Systems have shown that IAR Embedded Workbench for RISC-V complies with the testing criteria specified by the respective standards and is suitable for use in safety-related development. IAR Embedded Workbench is certified by TÜV SÜD.
IAR Embedded Workbench for RISC-V is a complete development toolchain, including the highly optimizing IAR C/C++ Compiler and the feature-rich C-SPY Debugger. The software is complemented by native debugging and trace probes. The debug probe I-jet supports on-chip RAM buffered trace, along with fast JTAG/cJTAG/DAP debug. It’s complemented by the powerful trace probe I-jet Trace, which can livestream trace information for code coverage and profiling purposes.
The functional safety edition of IAR Embedded Workbench includes a functional safety certificate, a safety report from TÜV SÜD, and a Safety Manual. With the certified tools, IAR Systems provides a Functional Safety Support and Update Agreement with guaranteed support for the sold version for the longevity of the contract. Along with prioritized technical support, the agreement includes access to validated service packs and regular reports of known deviations and problems.
