New ad­di­tion to au­to­mo­tive mi­cro-con­troller fam­ily

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

The RH850 from Altium is the lat­est au­to­mo­tive mi­cro­con­troller fam­ily from Re­ne­sas to of­fer high per­for­mance, bal­anced with low power con­sump­tion over a wide and scal­able range of prod­ucts.

This fam­ily pro­vides rich func­tional safety and em­bed­ded se­cu­rity fea­tures needed for new and ad­vanced au­to­mo­tive ap­pli­ca­tions. It of­fers a range of CPU core struc­tures (sin­gle, mul­ti­ple, lock-step and com­bi­na­tion thereof) to support high per­for­mance and/or high re­li­a­bil­ity re­quire­ments.

The new Task­ing VX-toolset sup­ports all cur­rently avail­able RH850 de­vices. Altium will con­tinue to work with Re­ne­sas to support fu­ture RH850 vari­ants to en­sure the de­liv­ery of Task­ing’s well-re­spected multi-core support fea­tures de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Altium’s Tier-1 au­to­mo­tive cus­tomers.

The Task­ing VX-toolset for RH850 is the first com­piler to in­cor­po­rate support for the lat­est MISRA C:2012 guide­lines for C pro­gram­ming, in ad­di­tion to the MISRA C:1998 and C:2004 guide­lines. Task­ing’s MISRA C support en­ables de­vel­op­ers to eas­ily se­lect the MISRA rules to en­force and con­fig­ure the MISRA guide­lines in ac­cor­dance with the company’s pre­scribed rules in or­der to in­crease code safety, re­li­a­bil­ity and main­tain­abil­ity.

By pro­vid­ing support for MISRA C:2012, de­vel­op­ers now can ben­e­fit from the lat­est guide­line im­prove­ments that can re­duce the cost and com­plex­ity of com­pli­ance, whilst aid­ing con­sis­tent, safe use of C in crit­i­cal sys­tems.

“With the RH850 ar­chi­tec­ture Re­ne­sas has built a mi­cro con­troller fam­ily that has gained a lot of recog­ni­tion amongst our au­to­mo­tive cus­tomers, re­sult­ing in a strong in­ter­est for Task­ing’s ro­bust and ef­fi­cient VX com­piler tech­nol­ogy to support the RH850 se­ries,” says Har­mAn­dre Ver­hoef, Task­ing prod­uct man­ager at Altium.

“Thanks to close co­op­er­a­tion with Re­ne­sas in the de­vel­op­ment of the new VX-toolset, as well as our abil­ity to de­velop a com­piler that works in­de­pen­dently from com­pil­ers for other ar­chi­tec­tures, we have been able to cre­ate a sta­ble and highly op­ti­mised com­piler for the RH850 in a very short time.”

Task­ing’s Viper tech­nol­ogy used in the new RH850 com­piler en­sures com­pat­i­bil­ity to other Task­ing toolsets and eases ap­pli­ca­tion mi­gra­tion..­eren­quiry #141135a
