Infineon’s Aurix TriCore application kits are available from RS Components
Evaluation and development kits based on Infineon’s Aurix TriCore microcontroller are supplied by RS Components. The kits target fast and easy development for a variety of use cases in automotive and industrial automation, says RS Components.
The range of evaluation and development kits are based on Infineon’s 32-bit TriCore microprocessor core which combines elements of a RISC processor core, a microcontroller and a DSP in a single microcontroller chip. According to the manufacturer, the TriCore combines embedded safety and security features. It is used in a range of automotive and industrial applications.
The Arduino-compatible, low-cost evaluation and development kits range from simple design projects to more sophisticated designs. To simplify development, Infineon’s Aurix offers a highly integrated software development (IDE) environment which includes tools required by engineers to compile, debug, and flash program the Aurix microcontroller-based applications.
The Aurix TC297 TFT application kit, for example, offers an inexpensive and flexible application development platform for the 32-bit Aurix TriCore devices. The kit includes various on-board components with specific features including the TC297 controller in a 292-pin LFBGA package, a 320 x 240 LCD, SD card slot, high-speed CAN transceiver and acoustic beeper.
There are kits intended for the high end of the Aurix portfolio which are tailored to automotive and industrial applications, such as motor control units or automotive gateways. At the other end of the Aurix range, the TC275 and the TC375 ‘lite’ kits are both supported by the Aurix development studio, which is available free of charge. The TC275 ‘shield buddy’ and the TC375 lite kit follow the Arduino standard, which means they are compatible with many of the widely available application shields, recommends RS Components.
Options include a wide choice of memories, peripheral sets, frequencies, temperatures, and packaging options.
