September 12, 2011 -- IAR Systems AB has acquired Signum Systems Corp., a vendor of hardware and software development tools for embedded systems. With the acquisition, IAR Systems complements its product offering with a broad series of high-quality JTAG emulators, in-circuit emulators and debuggers.

"More powerful processors and increasingly complex embedded systems are driving the need for more advanced tools for testing and debugging," says Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems. "With its high competence, excellent technical support and world-class technologies, Signum is in many ways similar to IAR Systems, and exactly the company we want to team up with."

Signum supplies JTAGjet, a series of full-featured JTAG-based emulators, in-circuit emulators (ICE) and debuggers such as the Chameleon Debugger to developers of microcontroller-, microprocessor-, and DSP-based systems. Supported devices include all ARM processor architectures: ARM7, 9, 11, ARM Cortex-M0, M1, M3, M4, R4, A8, A9, MPCore and Intel XScale. Signum also supports all Texas Instruments DSP processor architectures.

The new product portfolio of JTAG emulators is an addition to the existing portfolio of hardware probes.

Like IAR Systems, Signum has its strongest position in the fast growing ARM-based market. "The acquisition taps into our commitment to provide customers with reliable and powerful development tools for current and future ARM processors" said Stefan Skarin. "Many of our customers are standardizing their programming projects on IAR Embedded Workbench to vastly improve efficiency and time to market for new products. Customers who standardize their tool chain not only effectively reduce their costs today—they also boost their opportunities for next generation products."
