IAR Systems, a provider of development tools for embedded systems, has joined forces with CAST Inc., a semiconductor IP provider, to open up opportunities for developers working with 8051-based applications. Complete tool support for CAST's 8051 MCUs is also available with the release of the version 9.10 of the high-performance development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for 8051, the companies indicated.

CAST helped pioneer 8051 IP in 1999, and continues as an 8051 IP leader with hundreds of customers successfully shipping products, the company stated. Partnering with 8051 design experts Silesia Devices, CAST's offerings include 8051 MCUs that the company said are among the fastest and the smallest such IP cores available. With proven reliability and easy development, these fast, small and power-efficient modern 8051s are finding new life paired with sensors or communications functions in Internet of Things (IoT), mobile and wearable electronic applications.

IAR Embedded Workbench for 8051 is a complete set of development tools for MCUs based on the 8051 core. For simplified development workflows, the tools feature integrations for a range of hardware debug systems and device configuration tools. IAR Systems has in cooperation with CAST developed a plugin for the C-SPY Debugger in IAR Embedded Workbench with support for CAST's native on-chip debug package. Thanks to this integration, developers can take full advantage of the powerful and easy-to-use features in IAR Embedded Workbench for 8051, added the companies.
