Lauterbach already supports the 32-bit Multicore AURIX™ of Infineon and its first available product the TC27x
Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn, May 2012 - Lauterbach GmbH, the leading manufacturer of microprocessor development tools, is the first supporting the new AURIX™ TC27x family with its TRACE32® Debugger.
The new AURIX™ TC27x family is the platform of Infineon’s next generation MCU family to meet the requirements of the latest automotive powertrain and safety applications. It consists of up to three TriCore™´s to handle the application load in AMP, SMP or lockstep mode. The first AURIX™ device is the TC27x with 200MHz triple core and 4MB eFlash.
"By the early availability of stable and feature-rich AURIX™ debug solution, we enable our customers to get a smooth start into the new 32-bit Multicore AURIX family", said Gerd Punsmann, TriCore™ Tool Manager at Infineon Technologies AG.
As a result of the close cooperation with Infineon, customers now have in time access to TRACE32®, the industry’s leading development tool, and can take advantage of the premium technical support available worldwide from Lauterbach.
TRACE32® provides access to all on-chip debug features and supports on-chip trace as well as a full integration of the MCDS trigger and filter capabilities in the TRACE32® PowerView interface. Program flow and/or data access are recorded by means of on-chip trace in real time.
A highlight of the TC27x lead device is the AGBT trace port using the Aurora protocol. Lauterbach has experience with their high speed serial trace probe since many years and support the TC27x with 2,5 Gbit/s trace speed enabling all long time trace features of the TRACE32® software. The recordings can be given a time stamp, enabling statistical evaluations during runtime without the need of code instrumentation.
The debugger for the General Timer Modul (GTM) is a free add-on to the debugger for Infineon's AURIX™ family and will be displayed in a separate instance of the TRACE32® software. Also a real time trace of the GTM is included.
TRACE32 also fully supports the debugging of the integrated HSM (Hardware Security Module). The HSM allows automotive customers to fulfill upcoming security requirements for a better protection of their applications from potential hacking attacks.
