San Jose, Calif. - IAR Systems has developed an innovative technology to enable software developers to reduce power consumption in embedded systems. The new functionality works by coupling power consumption directly to the application software, and enables the developer to analyze power consumption and correlate it with program execution.
Using this approach, developers can tune and optimize the application's power profile. Oscilloscopes are commonly used to display and measure power consumption, but IAR's new technology enables the developer to actually connect the power consumption to what is happening in the software. The functionality also dramatically reduces the effort required to identify the underlying causes of a power glitch.
With a rapidly increasing demand for low-power solutions in embedded systems, the new technology is a significant advance in embedded software development. The technology will be integrated first into IAR Embedded Workbench, and will continue with additional products and solutions as part of our core technology.
IAR Systems will start including the technology with new functionality in IAR Embedded Workbench later in 2010.
