Vorago and IAR target harsh embedded environments

By Nick Flaherty

IAR Systems is now providing a safety-critical code development flow for a new embedded microcontroller that can operate in harsh environments. 

The VA108x0 microcontrollers (MCUs) from VORAGO Technologies are based on the ARM Cortex-M0 core and are designed specifically for harsh environments with radiation and extreme temperature (-55° to 200°C), in industries such as aerospace, automotive, industrial, oil and gas, and space. Based on VORAGO’s patented and proven HARDSIL technology, the VA108x0 MCUs provide developers with robust embedded solutions that reduce development complexity and power consumption, while increasing reliability and longevity.

“Many of our customers have requested the possibility to use IAR Systems’ software tools in their development, and we are delighted that our MCUs are now supported in IAR Embedded Workbench”, says Ross Bannatyne, Marketing Director, VORAGO Technologies. “The combination of VORAGO’s extreme temperature and radiation resistant MCUs and the powerful toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench will enable companies to create many robust and high-reliable applications in the near future.”

The IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is a complete C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain and includes a functional safety version certified by TÜV SÜD according to the requirements of IEC 61508, ISO 26262 and EN 50128.

Support for VORAGO’s VA108x0 MCUs is available now in the latest version of IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM. More information about the tools and free trial versions are available at
