TASKING announces new Multi Core Performance Tool

June 2, 2020

A simple and cost-effective tool for optimizing the performance of automotive embedded applications utilizing the Infineon TriCore/AURIX ™ microcontrollers.

Amersfoort, Netherlands – June 2, 2020 - TASKING, the embedded software division of Altium (ASX:ALU), today announced its new Multi Core Performance Tool (MCPT) for microcontrollers from Infineon. This new tool enables TASKING and Infineon customers to quickly measure and analyze individual processor loads as well as interpret the interaction of software tasks running on the AURIX™ multi-core devices.

The automotive safety controller market has evolved from relatively simple single-core Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) to complex multi-core systems.  The additional bandwidth and performance gains from multi-core hardware has been counteracted with increased software requirements for redundant fail safe, fail operational and cyber secure solutions.   

To optimize system performance, the embedded systems engineer needs the ability to measure the behavior and interaction of all software components executing on a multi-core device.  The analysis of this real time behavior allows developers to efficiently identify potential performance improving corrective actions.  

The TASKING Multi Core Performance Tool’s ease of use and flexibility allow it to be used throughout the software development process.  Software architects and system developers can take advantage of its load analysis capability to define and implement well-balanced multi-core solutions.  System integrators can use the tool to measure and prove the load on each core is within OEM specifications and system validation engineers can continuously monitor and understand system behavior during worst case load and stress test conditions.


The TASKING Multi Core Performance Tool is available immediately.

An evaluation version of the tool is available on the Multi Core Performance Tool page
