Altium, a Global Leader in Elecrronic Design Automation and Neutron Controls, Service & Development System provider for Embedded Systems and Infineon Preferred Design House for AURIXTM, join forces to provide extended services to the North American embedded industry.

San Diego, Calif. – April 25, 2017 - Altium today announced a cooperation agreement with Canada based Neutron Controls to combine its design services and know-how around Infineon related applications with the compiler centric tool offerings from TASKING to serve customers in the North American embedded industry with a more complete offering.


Design House Services for AURIXTM

As a Preferred Design House for AURIX Neutron Controls offers both consulting and engineering support, specialized in applications built on and around Infineon’s AURIX™ TriCore™ based Microcontroller platforms.


Compiler centric tools with leading performance

Through the agreement, Neutron Controls will be able to provide extended services to the market by including the TASKING compilers and compiler centric tools to their portfolio. The TASKING VX-toolset for TriCore/AURIX is recognized in its user base to deliver best performance in terms of speed and memory footprint. The recent ASPICE Level 2 certification of the development processes and safety related tools like TASKING Safety Checker for test against freedom from interference are well recognized in the TASKING use base, especially in safety and ADAS related areas.


“Through the close cooperation with TASKING as the Embedded Systems Division of Altium, our customers will benefit from the extended service portfolio we provide to the market,” says Dave Stubbs, President of Neutron Controls, “While tools like the TASKING AURIX Configuration Tools make it easier for customers to get a headstart into the AURIX platform, we will be able to offer help and training around safety and performance related topics.”
