Release build IAR for Kinetis micro controllers

Hi,

 

I am using Kinetis MK53N512CMD100 and IAR is the IDE for development. In other micro controller examples, Debug and Release build options are available but not in K53 examples.

I tried defining NDEBUG in pre-processor tab and changed optimization level from  default "LOW" to "MEDIUM" and "HIGH". Even though code size gets reduced by a few Kilo Bytes,

functionality is affected. The default build and flash configurations I get are

  • Is the default build configuration "debug"?
  • How to enable "Release" build in IAR?
  • Is there some configuration/ plugin to enable Debug and Release mode?

 

Please do reply.. I have attached the project I am using

Hey,

Thank you guys.. I could add the release configuration to my project. Please Correct me if I am wrong. I added the new 'release' configuration as Xi mentioned. Now release option is there in the project. But when I clean and rebuild the project and in the "build/IAR/hello_world/release/exe/ " folder location where the executable are generated, there is no reduction in size of the firmware.My understanding is release build is an optimized version of the same project and there will be a reduction in the size of the firmware when compared with debug mode. Am I wrong ? Please let me know if there is some other option which needs to be enabled for getting an optimized code without affecting functionality

Hi Iva,

I have attached the project as a zip folder in my original post..  I don't know what I am doing wrong with the configurations.
