EDA software company Altium offering a new toolset as a major update to the TASKING compiler for Infineon's TriCore/AURIX MCU ICs with new features and enhancements for advanced automotive application development, where safety and reliability are priorities. Lite Edition of the TASKING VX-toolset for TriCore with one year license can be requested at Infineon website or the TASKING website.
“We were often asked about the availability of a quick and easy way to explore the advantages of TASKING compiler technology for Infineon AURIX microcontrollers,” said Harm-Andre, TASKING Product Manager. “Our partnership with Infineon has allowed us to develop a free toolset that provides the embedded software developers around the world with the complete TASKING TriCore compiler experience with no compromises to features and performance.”
This toolset features the AURIX Configuration Tools (ACT), which includes:
Integrated Pin Mapper. This pin mapper solution saves the developer from the tedious task of managing pin assignments in spreadsheets by making it easy to assign the peripheral module signals to physical pins on the chip.
Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) for TriCore. The TASKING RTOS provides a real-time, multitasking kernel designed specifically for time-critical embedded applications that require a high degree of modularity and configuration.
Software Platform Builder. The Software Platform Builder provides the flexibility needed to build advanced microcontroller applications through the use of a unified graphics editor and code generator which can quickly configure low-level drives, C files, header files, and the RTOS.
