This upcoming AURIX™ family of microcontrollers will be prepared for data-hungry automotive applications such as future gateways, domain and zone controllers, engine management, electro-mobility, and advanced driver assistance systems. At the same time these microcontrollers will deliver the safety features, throughput, and power-efficient performance necessary to meet increasing AI computational requirements.

The new TASKING development environment is being developed according to Automotive SPICE® Level 2 standards, with plans for TÜV certification according to ISO 26262 up to ASIL D. This development environment provides compiler support for the new Parallel Processing Unit (PPU) from Synopsys, one of the main enhancements in the next generation AURIX™ family of microcontrollers, in addition to all instruction set architectures used in the next generation AURIX™ TC v1.8.

“These new capabilities from TASKING, empower our automotive customers to make safer traditional and autonomous vehicles, by providing them with a more expansive set of software development tools,” said Franz Maidl, Director Global TASKING Business. “This expansion also reinforces our relationship with Infineon as a partner of choice for Tricore™/AURIX™.”
