German embedded tool developer Tasking has updated its VX-Toolset to support Infineon’s latest automotive microcontroller.
The compiler in version 6.0r1 of the VX-Toolset for ARM Cortex-M now supports the Infineon TRAVEO T2G microcontroller family based on Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M7 cores.
Infineon and TASKING have been working together for many years on the software development tools for the TriCore/AURIX (TC2x, TC3x and TC4x) devivces. With the expansion of the toolset to support the TRAVEO T2G family, Tasking now offers toolchains for Infineon’s entire MCU portfolio. This means that compilers for both TRAVEO T2G and AURIX are now available from a single tool partner. This simplifies the work of users who already use both AURIX and TRAVEO T2G microcontrollers but also supports new customers developing body and comfort applications.
The VX-Toolset for ARM Cortex-M is qualified to the ISO 26262 standard up to the highest level of ASIL D. TÜV certification is planned for this year. With the toolchain, TASKING also supplies a safety manual which allows engineers to use the toolchain for the development of safety-critical applications up to ASIL D without any further qualification measures. This significantly simplifies and accelerates the certification of the system and reduces costs for the customer.
“The upgrade of the VX-Toolset for ARM Cortex-M creates a strong ecosystem for our TRAVEO T2G microcontrollers,” said Ralf Ködel, Vice President Microcontroller at Infineon. “This allows Tasking and Infineon to support and expand the joint customer base.”
“We are pleased to further deepen our cooperation with Infineon by now supporting TRAVEO T2G with the VX-Toolset for ARM Cortex-M,” said Florian Süßmair, Director Product Marketing at Tasking. “Especially customers who already use our toolchains for AURIX will now benefit from the extension: they get a TASKING compiler for TRAVEO T2G in the usual quality and based on the same technology as the AURIX toolchains.”
The VX-toolset for ARM Cortex-M v6.0r1 is available immediately: www.tasking.com/products/arm.
Tasking will host a product release webinar on 28 April 2022. At 9:30 a.m. (CEST) and 6:30 p.m. (CEST), Mohamed Zuhair, Field Application Engineer, and Dheeraj Ghuptha, Field Application Engineer, will present the TASKING VX-toolset for ARM Cortex-M v6.0r1.
