Writing PSoC Applications with IAR Embedded Workbench
Did you know you could write PSoC applications in IAR's Embedded Workbench IDE?
You can, and PSoC Creator makes it really easy with its IDE export wizard. Just build a design in PSoC Creator and launch the wizard.
This generates all the files you need to quickly create a new project in the IAR tool. To use them, launch Embedded Workbench and create a new project. From the Project menu, ask to add a project connection file and choose Generated_Source\projname.ipcf.
You'll see your empty project immediately get populated with the all the application and generated files for the PSoC design. In just a few mouse clicks, you're nearly ready to build the project!
All you need to do before that is to tell Embedded Workbench a few things about the design. First choose the PSoC device you are using.
Then set up the linker by providing the command file and PSoC library both files are provided by PSoC Creator so there is no hunting through device documentation or learning linker script rules.
And that's it! Now you're ready to edit code and build with the IAR compiler. It's as simple as that. Give it a try and tell us what you think.
Not too many people know about this feature of the tool, which is a shame because it is a real boon to product teams who have separate hardware design and application development groups.
