Silexica SLX Automotive Design Tools Feature Infineon TriCore Models

19 April 2017

Multicore software design automation firm Silexica released its SLX Automotive Development package, which provides programming support for multicore automotive software.

New features comprise source-level static/dynamic analysis and visualization of inter-component dependencies in automotive applications, visualization of multicore runnable schedules, and compatibility with AUTOSAR configuration files, among others.

The SLX Automotive Development package integrates with all other tools in the SLX IDE, and also provides interactive source code navigation for complex multicore automotive projects, the company says.

The SLX Automotive Development package also features high-level models of the Infineon TriCore 1.6P architecture and Aurix TC297T multicore SoC. These models enable cross-target performance and communication overhead estimation during parallelization and distribution analyzes, the company says.

The new platform models are also compatible with the SLX Mapper, SLX Parallelizer and SLX Explorer.

"We understand that the complexity of programming and code distribution for automotive applications will continue to increase as automotive multicore platforms are moving towards a central supercomputer," said Maximilian Odendahl, Silexica CEO.
