A hardware support package has been developed for the MathWorks Simulink products for Infineon’s latest Aurix TC4x family of automotive microcontrollers. The package built by the two suppliers can be applied – even before silicon is available – when designing EVs, sensor fusion, and radar signal processing functions. It facilitates validation of use cases, rapid and automatic generation of the embedded software, and testing of algorithms.
Marco Cassol, director of microcontroller product marketing for ADAS, chassis and EE architecture applications at Infineon Technologies, “Our newest Aurix TC4x microcontroller family will give customers unparalleled real-time safety and security performance. Support for these chips from the widely used MathWorks capabilities for model-based design enables engineers to get an earlier start on pre-silicon software development and automate code generation to accelerate that development. The resulting time-to-market benefits could significantly impact our customers’ success.”
“This close collaboration with Infineon will enable our mutual customers to accelerate the pace of development of electric vehicle systems. Engineers can tackle complex systems while managing risk, with an improved understanding of system-level behavior, continuous verification, and a digital thread to requirements. We are proud to contribute to these activities that help make vehicles cleaner, more efficient, and more reliable,” commented Jim Tung, MathWorks fellow.
