Lauterbach and Vector Introduce Solution for Timing Analysis of AUTOSAR Systems
Lauterbach, the leading supplier of debug tools and Vector collaborate to provide accurate timing data for embedded AUTOSAR systems. The solution is based on the AUTOSAR Classic basic software MICROSAR and runs on TriCore™ AURIX™ processors from Infineon. Option TA.Inspection as part of TA Tool Suite from Vector is used to import TRACE32 trace measurements to analyze them in terms of response times, utilization, and other metrics.
Multi-core TriCore™ AURIX™ microcontrollers are a popular choice in the automotive industry for the development of ECUs. A typical AURIX™ second generation processor has up to six TriCore CPUs. The MCDS trace and trigger logic for the TriCore™ AURIX™ generates trace data for the program execution only for a limited number of cores, but never for all of them simultaneously. However, many customers want trace data that includes all TriCore CPUs, especially when it comes to OS and RTE runtime measurements. In addition, many TRACE32 users demand that the trace data can be forwarded directly to a timing tool, to verify them against the system requirements.
