The development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm brings high performance and strong code optimizations capabilities to companies choosing Alif Semiconductor’s Ensemble and Crescendo families of AI-enabled MCUs and fusion processors, respectively. The partnership, say the companies, accelerates innovation in the embedded space through strong AI and machine learning (ML) capabilities.

Alif Semiconductor’s power efficient product families scale by offering up to four processing cores plus AI/ML acceleration, multi-layered security, integrated LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT connectivity, global navigation satellite system (GNSS) positioning and much more. IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm is designed to provide powerful code optimizations to assist developers in getting the most out of the performance of a device and yet stay as energy efficient as possible.

“Alif Semiconductor’s high level of functional integration delivers what are essentially single chip IoT systems to developers,” says Mark Rootz, Sr. Marketing Director, Alif Semiconductor. “By partnering with IAR Systems to enable our customers to benefit from their world-class tools, we are able to ensure that the applications they create can benefit from some of the most powerful optimization technology in the industry.”

Anders Lundgren, Product Manager, IAR Systems says, “IAR Systems and Alif Semiconductor are working together to enable the next generation of embedded connected applications. Our development tools for Arm features leading compiler technology, with optimizations for both code size and speed, as well as high-performance debugging, providing a great platform for companies to maximize the potential of Alif’s AI-enabled Ensemble and Crescendo products.”
