Synopsys Expands Portfolio of Automotive VDKs with Support for Infineon’s AURIX TC4xx 32-bit Microcontroller Family

Virtualizer Development Kit Accelerates Infineon’s Hardware and Software Development from Concept to Validation

Synopsys, Inc. announced the availability of a Virtualizer Development Kit (VDK) supporting the Infineon AURIX TC4xx Microcontroller Family. The availability of the VDK for TC4xx is the result of the Infineon and Synopsys Center of Excellence collaboration, a long-term close partnership focused on accelerating the development of automotive systems based on Infineon’s AURIX microcontrollers. Infineon has also successfully deployed the VDK internally to accelerate hardware and software development from concept studies to validation activities resulting in a better qualified and proven TC4xx virtual prototype model.

Synopsys VDKs enable partners, automotive tier 1s and OEMs to start TC4xx software development months ahead of silicon availability and shift testing and evaluation of automotive systems from physical to virtual. The TC4xx virtual prototype supports a comprehensive set of models for the Tricore CPU subsystem, the Parallel Processing Unit (PPU), memories, communication, timer, analog to digital converters, security and safety. The PPU, based on Synopsys’ DesignWare ARC EV7x Processor IP, is a powerful, scalable and easy to integrate single instruction-multiple data (SIMD) vector DSP for implementing affordable AI and high-speed control performance in AURIX TC4xx. The VDK enables early investigation and testing of innovative algorithm implementations for AI and deep learning solutions for predictive high-speed control loops required by future eMobility use cases. In addition, external communication, co-simulation and debug/test interfaces are provided to seamlessly bring the virtual prototype into automotive development flows for software debugging, virtual hardware-in-the-loop testing, and calibration and fault testing. From interactive development to regression deployment in high performance computing environment, the VDK for TC4xx accelerates time-to-market, improves quality and reduces development costs.

The Synopsys VDK for Infineon’s AURIX TC4xx family has been deployed internally at Infineon for a variety of use cases from concept to validation. Use cases include hardware and software concept studies for the suitability of new features in targeted applications, MCAL development with a methodology to seamlessly switch between virtual prototype and physical hardware in Infineon’s validation environment, and co-verification of Infineon’s low-level driver for hardware verification and validation. Infineon is also using the VDK for customer demonstrations and early preparation and verification of test patterns before hardware verification in emulation. Infineon’s internal usage helps to accelerate virtual prototype development and ensures better quality and tight integration with Infineon’s software.

“With increased electronic and software content, leading automotive tier 1 and OEM companies are transitioning from physical to a virtual development environment to meet tighter deadlines, higher quality and more stringent safety and security requirements,” said Tom De Schutter, vice president of engineering at Synopsys. “With our comprehensive automotive virtual prototyping solutions, close collaboration with Infineon, and new VDK for Infineon AURIX TC4xx, we are jointly enabling automotive companies to start innovating and developing earlier, with higher reliability and at lower costs.”
