During last week's embedded world 2005 Exhibition&Conference, Altium Ltd announced the release of version 2.2 of its TASKING TriCore VX-toolset.

Enhanced with next generation viper compiler technology, version 2.2 offers new features aligned to Infineon's 32bit TriCore microcontrollers, including latest variants TC1115 and TC1796. According to the press release, the TriCore VX-toolset has been tested and qualified with Infineon's new Debug Access Server (DAS) solution, developed to replace Infineon's low-level OCDS drivers. Altium explained that this provides on-chip debugging functionality with the TASKING CrossView Pro debugger on TC1796 evaluation boards on Windows-XP systems.

In addition, the new TriCore VX-toolset supports last year's MISRA-C:2004 update as an additional option, along with support of the original MISRA-C:1998 guidelines. It provides developers flexibility to determine whether code is required or recommended to comply with MISRA-C:2004, depending on the company's standards and project requirements.

A fast and compact TCP/IP stack reference design has also been added as a sample project to the new toolset which enables developers to test various networking functions in a TriCore based application, and is ready to run on Infineon's TC1130 TriBoard. The functionality includes HTTP and FTP servers, as well as SMTP and DHCP clients. Additional features include a code performance improvement of up to 25 percent, compiler time reduction of 55 percent and overall assembler improvements of around 80 percent.

The TASKING TriCore VX-toolset consists of the TASKING EDE, C/C++/EC++ compiler, assembler, linker/locator and CrossView Pro OCDS, and simulator debugger. It is available for PC/Windows and SUN/Solaris platforms, with prices starting at $4,490 for the C/C++/EC++ compiler and simulator debugger package for PC/Windows.
