How to use IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm 7.10 to develop embedded applications
IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm 7.10 is a complete development environment for Arm-based embedded systems. It provides a user-friendly IDE, a powerful compiler, a comprehensive debugger, and integrated code analysis tools. In this article, we will show you how to use IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm 7.10 to create, build, and debug a simple project for an Arm Cortex-M3 microcontroller.
Step 1: Create a new project
To create a new project, launch IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm 7.10 and select File > New > Workspace. A workspace is a container for one or more projects. Give your workspace a name and save it in a location of your choice. Then, select Project > Create New Project to create a new project within the workspace. You can choose from various project templates depending on your target device and application type. For this example, we will use the \"Hello World\" template for the STM32F103ZE device.
Step 2: Configure the project options
To configure the project options, right-click on the project name in the Workspace window and select Options. Here you can set various parameters for your project, such as compiler settings, linker settings, debugger settings, and device configuration. For this example, we will use the default settings except for the following changes:
In General Options > Library Configuration, select \"Full\" to enable the standard C library functions.
In C/C++ Compiler > Preprocessor, add \"STM32F10X_HD\" to the defined symbols to enable the device-specific header file.
In Linker > Config, browse to the \"stm32f10x_flash.icf\" file in the \"config\" folder of your project to specify the linker configuration file.
In Debugger > Setup, select \"ST-LINK\" as the driver and \"SWD\" as the interface to use the ST-LINK debugger probe.
Step 3: Write and build the code
To write and build the code, open the main.c file in the Editor window and enter the following code:
