AURIX™ TC4x MCAL Evaluation Bundle from HighTec Provides Simplicity to Manage AUTOSAR Complexity

HighTec EDV-Systeme GmbH, in collaboration with Infineon Technologies AG, announces the release of the AURIX™ TC4x MCAL Evaluation Bundle. This comprehensive bundle simplifies the AUTOSAR-based development process for the new AURIX TC4x family, by providing all necessary tools in one package.

The new AURIX TC4x multicore microcontroller family from Infineon especially aims automotive applications with high demands regarding performance, safety and security, such as zone and domain controllers, and engine management systems. With the new AURIX™ TC4x MCAL Evaluation Bundle, HighTec and Infineon now offer a joint solution that enables software engineers to reduce setup time and increase the productivity of their development process even for more complex AUTOSAR projects. The evaluation bundle includes the TC4x BASIC MCAL Package with all essential drivers for hardware abstraction and the EB tresos tool for easy configuration and integration. An essential piece of the bundle is the HighTec’s automotive grade LLVM-based TriCore™ C/C++ compiler: Being optimized for the TriCore architecture, HighTec’s ISO 26262 ASIL D qualified compiler ensures the highest performance for safety-critical applications based on TC4x microcontrollers. The integrated development environment (IDE) comes with an integrated debugger, which further simplifies coding and testing of applications. Project examples with getting started documentation and a MCAL GUI that complements the AURIX TC4x MCAL Evaluation Bundle.

“The AURIX TC4x MCAL Evaluation Bundle will greatly enhance our AURIX ecosystem,” said Thomas Schneid, Senior Director Software, Partnership & Ecosystem Management at Infineon. “It extends our ease-of-use approach to the AURIX MCALs and reduces the setup time for software development engineers. We are happy to cooperate on this with our long-term partner HighTec, who provides a highly optimized LLVM based TC4x compiler and excellent technical support, including AUTOSAR and MCAL.”

“With this one-stop-shop bundle approach, we boost the productivity of engineers to evaluate MCALs and AUTOSAR on AURIX TC4x,” said Mario Cupelli, CTO of HighTec EDV-Systeme. “Together with our highly optimized C/C++ and Rust compiler, we provide efficient and dependable tools for AURIX including support of integrated co-processor such as PPU. This aligns with our strategy of offering safe and secure solutions based on innovative open-source technologies.” 

The AURIX TC4x MCAL Evaluation Bundle is available immediately from HighTec. To provide developers a quick start, HighTec offers a 3-month evaluation license with option to extend. For technical details and further information on download and license options, please visit
