AURIX™ 32-bit TriCore™ Microcontroller

AURIX™  32-bit TriCore™ Microcontroller
In 1999, Infineon launched the first generation of the AUDO (AUtomotive unifieD 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 optimized the concept ever since – culminating in what is now the fifth TriCore™ generation. With its high real-time performance, embedded safety and security features, the TriCore™ family is the ideal platform for a wide range of automotive applications such as the control of combustion engines, electrical and hybrid vehicles, transmission control units, chassis domains, braking systems, electric power steering systems, airbags and advanced driver assistance systems. 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. And all this with a high degree of compatibility across generations. The TriCore™ success story continues with the introduction of the AURIX™ multicore family. AURIX™ combines easy‑to‑use functional safety support, a strong increase in performance and a future-proven security solution in a highly scalable product family.

The new AURIX™ family members are manufactured in a 65nm embedded Flash technology designed for ultimate reliability in harsh automotive environments. Furthermore, the dual frontend concept ensures continuous supply. As was the case with previous generations, safety software is also available to help manufacturers meet SIL/ ASIL safety standards, as well as AUTOSAR libraries which Infineon has been developing since 2005.

Schematic Description
32-bit multi-core TriCore™
AURIX™ is Infineon’s brand new family of microcontrollers serving exactly the needs of the automotive industry in terms of performance and safety. Its innovative multicore architecture, based on up to three independent 32-bit TriCore™ CPUs, has been designed to meet the highest safety standards while increasing the performance at the same time.
Using the AURIX™ platform, automotive developers will be able to control powertrain, body, safety and ADAS applications with one single MCU platform. Developments using AURIX™ will require less effort to achieve the ASIL-D standard than with a classical Lockstep architecture. Customers are now able to cut down their MCU safety development by 30%. By the same token, a performance surplus of 50% up to 100% allows for more functionality and offers a sufficient resource buffer for future requirements, keeping the power consumption on the single-core microcontroller level.
