New analysis tool features for Renesas RL78

has updated the embedded development tool IAR Embedded Workbench for the Renesas RL78 microcontroller family. The static analysis tool C-STAT is now supported. C-STAT can detect defects, bugs, and security vulnerabilities as defined by CERT C/C++ and Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) criteria, as well as help keep code compliant to coding standards like MISRA C:2004, MISRA C++:2008, and MISRA C:2012. Also included is stack usage analysis with maximum stack depth and call graph reporting facilities. Additional code optimizations have been integrated as well, such as the ability to automatically generate control programs for peripheral modules with user-defined settings. IAR Embedded Workbench includes the IAR C/C++ Compiler, assembler, linker, library tools, and the C-SPY Debugger in one single integrated development environment (IDE).
