IAR launches tools for first Cortex-M23 IoT chips

By Nick Flaherty

IAR Systems ins Sweden has launched a set of tools for the new SAM L10 and SAM L11 microcontroller families available from Microchip Technology.

The SAM L10 and SAM L11 families are based on the Arm Cortex-M23 core and the SAM L11 features extensive security features such as secure boot, secure key storage and an on-board cryptographic module, protecting customers’ IP and data. 

The low power consumption makes them suitable for implementing secure IoT nodes, along with an enhanced Peripheral Touch Controller (PTC) to deliver best-in-class water tolerant and noise immune, elegant touch interfaces. 

“Low power and high security are key enablers for IoT implementations,” said Rod Drake, vice president of Microchip’s MCU32 business unit. ”Together, with IAR Systems, we are providing our customers with new possibilities for planning for security from the start and ensuring that the applications provide best-in-class energy efficiency. Our new microcontrollers and tools from IAR Systems enable a myriad of automotive, appliance, medical and consumer applications.”

“By making use of our highly optimizing tools, developers can fully leverage the performance and power saving features of the SAM L10 and SAM L11 microcontrollers,” said Anders Lundgren, Product Manager, IAR Systems. “Thanks to the smart functionality and powerful debugging technology that IAR Embedded Workbench offers, they will also be able to speed up their development and bring their IoT products faster and easier to market.”

IAR is also launching the new security development environment Embedded Trust which will enable customers to integrate security into their day-to-day workflow.
