Infineon's microcontroller products are synonymous with automotive and industrial applications. The TriCore™ and AURIX™ single and multi-core devices are the central element of many safety-critical automotive applications, whilst their ARM® Cortex® Automotive Embedded Power ICs can be embedded into ASIL relevant applications requiring motors, such as window lifters. In the industrial space, especially where safety is important, AURIX™ and XMC microcontrollers can be found, where embedded developers can scale up and down within these families as demands change.
AURIX™ and TriCore™ MCUs
The highly integrated class of TriCore™-based microcontrollers fulfil the needs of safety-critical automotive applications, including features such as diverse lockstep cores. Safety is scalable from QM to ASIL D and the devices feature the latest in automotive networking connectivity, such as the enhanced data rate CAN FD.
XMC ARM® Cortex® MCUs
With their fast and precise analog/mixed signal peripherals, timers and PWMs, as well as communication peripherals, the XMC family of microcontrollers are adept in any industrial application. At the top end, the XMC4000 features EtherCAT®, bringing the capabilities of real-time Ethernet to your embedded device.
Automotive Embedded Power ICs
Targeting the automotive space, these ARM® Cortex® SoCs offer control of brushless and brushed motors as well as relays. Featuring both LIN and CAN interfaces, integrated voltage regulator, LIN transceiver and MOSFETs, these highly-integrated solutions offer automotive grade performance in miniature packaging.

iSYSTEM - Enabling Safer Embedded Systems
Regardless of the application or target microcontroller, or if you are using an evaluation board or your own prototype, iSYSTEM has a debugging solution to meet your needs. With our free integrated development environment (IDE) winIDEA Open, the on-board J-Link debug interface, featured on most XMC development boards, is an excellent way to get started. Simply develop your application code in Infineon's “DAVE™”, configure your peripherals and build your code. From there, it is simply a case of downloading the generated ELF file onto the target from within winIDEA Open to profit from the deep insights the winIDEA environment can offer. The TLE98xx SoCs are supported in a similar manner, and single and mulit-core applications developed for TriCore™ and AURIX™ can be debugged and profiled in winIDEA.
Additionally, it is also possible to start with on-chip testing of your application code using testIDEA. As soon as code trace or code coverage becomes an issue, you can upgrade to our range of BlueBox™ On-Chip Analyzers, as shown in the table below.
If you require further help to understand which BlueBox™ On-Chip Analyzer would best suit your needs, why not get in touch using the contact link on the right.
