Toolset updates Infineon’s microcontroller

New features and improvements to the Tasking VX-toolset for Infineon’s TriCore microcontroller with Aurix technology.

The TASKING toolset is an Eclipse-based embedded development toolchain with integrated compiler, multi-core linker, debugger and safety checker for optimising every part of the microcontroller. Specialised tools help streamline multi-core application design, allow functional safety verification, and develop fast and efficient embedded code. This 6.1 release allows users in ADAS-related projects will benefit from the new features, including support for Aurix-based applications. Its ACT (Aurix Configuration Tool) driven technology.

Another feature is cross-linking with older compiler output, to mix compiler output from different compiler versions. This feature is expected to be of special interest to users of Infineon’s MCAL libraries that are ported and validated with older compiler releases.

Extended C++11 support  allows for simplified reuse of source code, greater productivity, early error detection and proper support of parallel programming for ADAS.

Release 6.1 for TriCore/AURIX-based applications is available now, with a 14-day trial version on request. Existing customers with a maintenance contract can upgrade to the new release for free of charge.
