Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS remain in the spotlight because of tablets and smart phones. But there were plenty of other software highlights this year for embedded developers.
IAR Systems incorporates power into its IAR Embedded Workbench debugger. Eurotech’s offerings address the cloud from a device perspective. And, Intel’s Parallel Studio XE and Cluster Studio provide a broad range of parallel processing tools to developers.
IAR Systems’ power debugging brings power management into the debugging process. It requires the right kind of hardware because the debugger requires access to power usage information, which was possible with the IAR J-Link Ultra JTAG probe and matching support in Arm’s Cortex processors.
