Hitex board optimizes development for TriCore family


EMBEDDED WORLD, Nurnberg — Hitex has extended the tool range for Infineon’s TriCore family. TriCore is a 32-bit controller unifying three cores: the RISC and CISC instruction sets and a DSP-core. Incorporating a range of peripheral functions the TriCore is suitable for a range of industrial applications.

Tantino TriCore is a JTAG-debugger featuring a TriCore TC1130. The USB-driven tool comprises complete support of on-chip debug support (OCDS) break/trigger features, automatic voltage adjustment, full flash support and automatic JTAG clock configuration and adjustment. The Tantino Tricore as all Hitex systems runs with HiTOP, the universal IDE and user interface.

The HiMOD applications development kit is a quick and powerful way to develop with the TC176x or TC1796. The kit includes a TC1796 microcontroller on advanced single board computer measuring 76.5mm x 68.0mm.

All standard bus, input/output and peripheral signals are available on two parallel high-density 160-way connectors on the underside. Extra debugging signals are routed to an optional high-density 40-way connector on underside of board. The kit includes a code-size limited version of the HiTOP debugger and an evaluation version of the Tasking CTC v2 C/C++ compiler as well as the Infineon Dave CPU configuration and code generation tool.
