IAR Systems announced the launch of IAR Green Innovation Program, a sponsor program to support innovative development projects in eco-friendly technology. The program will award selected companies with up to $25,000 worth of IAR Embedded Workbench® or IAR visualSTATE® licenses for the duration of the project.
Many of the most innovative advances in renewable energy and clean-tech fields over the past twenty years have been developed by small, entrepreneurial technology companies and individuals. To support and further this progress, IAR Systems has created IAR Green Innovation Program to allow engineers easier access to world-leading embedded development tools including the powerful C/C++ compiler and debugger tool suite IAR Embedded Workbench and the highly sophisticated state machine tools IAR visualSTATE. By significantly enhancing development productivity, IAR Systems’ development tools help green entrepreneurs bring their ideas from prototype to commercialization stages and provide a reliable path to high volume deployment.
To be selected as a member of the program, the applying organization should be in the areas of environmental monitoring, renewable and clean energy systems, systems that optimize energy efficiency, recycling, climate-related disaster recovery, and green quality of life improvements for people in developing and third world countries. The organization could be a research center, a university program, or a startup company with 10 or fewer employees.
“For 30 years, IAR Systems has contributed to future-proof development projects around the world by continuously delivering world-leading development tools with the broadest architecture support to the market,” says Mike Skrtic, responsible for IAR Green Innovation Program and Strategic Account Manager, IAR Systems. “IAR Green Innovation Program is one step further to take responsibility for the future and to encourage developers who lead the way towards a more sustainable planet.”
