IAR Systems has been Named Finalist in the 2010 EDN Innovation Awards Competition for Power Debugging Technology

(PresseBox) (Muenchen, Germany, ) Uppsala, Sweden. IAR Systems® today announced that it was named a finalist in EDN's 21st annual Innovation Awards Competition in the software category for Power Debugging Technology. IAR Systems was selected as a finalist due to its enhanced feature of power debugging technology in IAR Embedded Workbench®. The power debugging technology feature created by IAR Systems samples the momentary current drawn by the system and feeds it to a power debug API where it is synchronized with the time-stamped debug information which includes the microcontroller's program counter; this connects power consumption directly to the source code.

"We are pleased that our power debugging technology has captured the attention of EDN's technical editorial staff sufficiently to nominate us as a finalist", comments Petter Edman, Chief Technology Officer, IAR Systems. He continues, "By using our power debugging facilities, embedded developers now have the capability to correlate application power consumption with program execution and the actual source code. This helps the developer to better understand and optimize the application's power profile."
