Embedded IDE can compile via GCC, LLVM, IAR or Keil

August 31, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Version 3.10 of Segger’s “Embedded Studio” cross platform development software offers multiple improvements, most notably higher speed and the ability to build programs using compilers other than the included GCC and Clang/LLVM. These other compilers can be integrated seamlessly into Embedded Studio and the resulting programs can be debugged using the built-in debugger.

The performance of the different compilers can be compared and the one generating the best code can be picked for the release build. For most applications, the GCC or LLVM/Clang compilers that come with Embedded Studio are used.


For an application that requires a commercial compiler for its release build, there is no need need to use the same compiler for all the members of a development team. A single licence for the commercial compiler is all that is needed, reducing total licensing costs. Embedded Studio also comes with a project importer supporting IAR and Keil tool chains, making the migration process easy.
