PLS' Universal Debug Engine (UDE) now also supports the Infineon TLE986x and TLE987x Embedded Power ICs
Optimum support guaranteed for device-specific test and debug functions
The highly integrated Embedded Power family was specifically designed for intelligent motor control in a wide range of automotive applications. The devices come in a standard QFN package with a footprint of only 7 mm x 7 mm. In addition to an ARM® Cortex™-M3 core, the devices include flash memory of up to 128 kB, up to six NFETs, a current sensor, a successive approximation 10-bit ADC, a capture and compare unit (CAPCOM6) for pulse width modulation (PWM) control and several 16-bit timers. A number of general purpose input-outputs (GPIOs) as well as a local interconnect network (LIN) interface compatible with LIN standard 2.2 and SAE J2602 serve as communication interfaces.
A defined subset of the standard CoreSight interface is provided for efficient testing and debugging of these highly complex bridge driver ICs. This customized subset is optimally supported by the UDE. The extensively equipped test and debug tool not only takes over control of the ARM® Cortex™-M3 core. With help of the UDE 4.3.4, the on-chip peripheral modules of the Embedded Power ICs can also be visualized and configured at symbolic level in text form.
Furthermore, in combination with PLS' high-performance Universal Access Device (UAD), a fast and reliable programming of the on-chip flash memory can be realized. A digitally isolated target adapter for the connection to the device via JTAG is optionally available. Furthermore, a full Eclipse integration with complete cross-debugger functionality is included in the UDE.
pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH
PLS Programierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH, based in Lauta, Germany, was founded in 1990. With its innovative modular test and development tools, the company has demonstrated for over two decades its position as an international technology leader in the field of debuggers, emulators and trace solutions for 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. The software architecture of the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) guarantees optimal conditions for debugging SoC-based systems. For example, by means of the intelligent use of modern on-chip debugging and on-debugging SoC-based systems. For example, by means of the intelligent use of modern on-chip debugging and on-chip trace units, valuable functions such as profiling and code coverage are available for the system optimization. Furthermore, the associated Universal Access Device (UAD2/UAD3+) product family, with transfer rates of up to 3.5 MBytes/s and a wide range of interfaces, offers entirely new dimensions for fast and flexible access to multicore systems. Important architectures such as TriCore, Power Architecture, XC2000/XE166, ARM, Cortex, SH-2A, XScale and C166/ST10 as well as simulation platforms of different vendors are supported.

Was ist ein System-on-a-Chip (SoC)?
Unter System-on-a-Chip (SoC) versteht man die Unterbringung von einem großen Teil oder meist sogar allen Funktionen eines Systems auf einem Chip. Solche Chips werden zum Beispiel in Handys, Bluray-Player und überall dort eingesetzt, wo auf kleinstem Raum eine sehr hohe Leistung gefordert ist.Weiterlesen
