Evolution of TriCore™ Generations
In 1999, Infineon launched the first generation of AUDO (AUtomotive unifie D processOr) family. Based on a unified RISC/MCU/DSP processor core, this 32-bit TriCore™ microcontroller was a computational power horse. And the company has evolved and opti- mized the concept ever since - culminating in what is now the fourth TriCore™ generation. Based on the TriCore™ architecture, the new AUDO MAX family (version 1.6) sets a new performance standard for automotive microcontrollers. The TriCore™ success story is continuing with the introduction of the AURIX™ multicore family. AURIX™ combines easy-to-use functional safety support, strong increase in performance and a future-proven security solution in a highly scalable product family.
Infineon’s AUDO families are designed to handle highly complex algorithms. They are the perfect match for gasoline and diesel engine management systems – meeting rising market demands for lower emissions and higher efficiency levels. These trends are being accelerated by the Euro 5 and Euro 6 standards and increasingly stringent CO 2 regulations. In addition to engine management, the AUDO family is also ideal for applications in hybrid and electric vehicles as well as for transmission, active and passive safety and chassis applications. TriCore™-based products also deliver the versatility required for the industrial sector, excelling in optimized motor control applications and signal processing.
Infineon’s broad product portfolio allows engineers to choose from a wide range of memories, peripheral sets, frequencies, temperatures and packaging options. All of these features are fully compatible across generations. The new core is platform-compatible and can be used with software developed on existing controllers. Safety software is also available to help manufacturers meet SIL/ASIL safety standards. All members of the AUDO family are binary-compatible and share the same development tools. An AUTOSAR library that enables existing code ready for integration is also available.
