IAR boosts development of FreeRTOS IoT module

By Nick Flaherty

Tool vendor IAR is supporting the new WiFi-based IoT module from NXP.

The module is based around the LPC54018 microcontroller and includes support for Amazon FreeRTOS and provides a seamless Wi-Fi connection to Amazon Web Services (AWS), enabling developers to create secure, cost-effective IoT solutions. 

The module offers unlimited memory extention, a root of trust built on the embedded SRAM physical unclonable functions (PUF) and on-chip cryptographic accelerators. The software libraries of Amazon FreeRTOS mean cloud on-boarding and over-the-air device management is simplified and theIAR Embedded Workbench provides code optimisation technology and extensive debugging functionality.

The speed optimisations and IAR C/C++ Compiler generate fast, efficient code for high-performance, low-power applications. To enable extensive debugging and profiling, the toolchain includes features such as complex code and data breakpoints, runtime stack analysis, call stack visualisation, code coverage analysis and integrated monitoring of power consumption. Through add-on tools for static analysis and runtime analysis, developers gain complete code control.

“We recently announced support for the new IoT microcontroller operating system Amazon FreeRTOS from Amazon Web Services,” said Anders Lundgren, Product Manager at IAR Systems. “This support in combination with the powerful code optimizations and debugging capabilities of IAR Embedded Workbench will enable developers to leverage the full potential of the new IoT module from NXP.”
