Lauterbach first debugger support for Infineon Aurix
Lauterbach is providing design support for the Aurix TC27x microcontroller range from Infineon.
Designed for automotive powertrain and safety applications, the MCUs integrate up to three TriCore processor cores to handle the application load in AMP, SMP or lockstep mode.
The first MCU supprted by the TRACE32 debugger is the TC27x with 200MHz triple core and 4Mbyte eFlash.
A feature of the TC27x device is the AGBT trace port using the Aurora protocol. Lauterbach supports 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 Module (GTM) is a free add-on to the debugger for Infineon’s MCU 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.
“With the early availability of a stable debug solution from Lauterbach, we are enabling our customers to get a good start with the new 32-bit multicore Aurix family”, said Gerd Punsmann, TriCore tool manager at Infineon Technologies.
TRACE32 supports on-chip trace as well as a full integration of the MCDS trigger and filter capabilities. Program flow and/or data access are recorded by means of on-chip trace in real time
