Wind River and Infineon expand software tools for TriCore

Wind River is collaborating with Infineon Technologies as part of a multi-year partnership to optimise Wind River’s Diab Compiler for Infineon’s TriCore microcontroller architecture.
Wind River has released an update to Wind River Diab Compiler that includes enhancements for TriCore architecture resulting in increased performance and smaller software footprint for TriCore developers. Infineon TriCore 32-bit microcontrollers provide high performance and real-time capabilities and are widely used for compute-intensive automotive applications such as power train, passive safety systems, engine control, energy management, and chassis control.Wind River Diab Compiler is an embedded software tool suite that includes a C/C++ compiler, assembler, linker, ANSI C and C++ libraries, and an instruction-set simulator that supports a variety of processor architectures including ARM, Power, SuperH and TriCore. Diab compiler technology is widely used in mission-critical applications, such as automotive, industrial, and aerospace and defence systems for over 25 years and is tested for quality and performance with millions of test cases.
Wind River and Infineon will also continue to collaborate on automotive-specific compiler requirements such as the need for compiler compliance with the latest ISO 26262 standard. The new standard is an adaptation of the Functional Safety standard IEC 61508 for automotive electric/electronic systems. ISO 26262 applies to functional safety aspects of the development process, including such activities as requirements specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation and configuration.
