OS & RTE Timing on all AURIX™ CPUs in Cooperation with Vector
Lauterbach, the world’s leading supplier of debug tools, announces collaboration with Vector to provide accurate timing data for embedded AUTOSAR systems. The solution is based on Vector´s AUTOSAR Classic basic software MICROSAR and runs on TriCore™ AURIX™ Processors from Infineon.
A typical AURIX 2G processor has up to six TriCore CPUs. However, the on-chip trace and trigger logic does not support simultaneous tracing of all of them. Accurately comparing the Operating System and AUTOSAR RTE runtime measurements against the system requirements was often rather demanding. This often led to increased efforts for developers.
Lauterbach and Vector have jointly developed a solution to simplify timing analysis, especially in AUTOSAR multi-core architectures. For this purpose, MICROSAR tracing hooks are used. They trigger dedicated hardware trace features for an efficient trace recording which is bandwidth and performance efficient.
According to Norbert Weiss, Managing Director of Lauterbach GmbH, “This collaboration brings the best of both worlds to embedded automotive developers. They can measure their systems and fine-tune them using class leading tools from two of the world’s leading tool providers. We will have a full demonstration available at Embedded World 2020 where attendees can meet and talk with our engineers.”
