Dev't platform cuts design time for embedded MCUs

Infineon Technologies AG has recently unveiled the latest version of its development platform DAVE, the "Digital Application Virtual Engineer" for its 32bit MCU families XMC1000 and XMC4000. The company has equipped the virtual DAVE engineer such that the development time for embedded systems on the basis of the XMC microcontrollers is further reduced thanks to efficient, component-based software development.

DAVE development platform

The programming of high-performance and flexible MCUs for high real-time requirements such as those of the 32bit XMC portfolio from Infineon generally calls for extensive hardware knowledge. Substantial time savings can be realised during software development, for example, if for the respective use cases, software components that have been developed and tested can be reused. XMC Lib and the DAVE APPs of the latest DAVE release include reusable software components that provide users with abstracted programming interfaces (APIs, application programmable interfaces). The user can easily program the XMC MCUs and its peripherals supported via a GUI. At the same time, users do not have to concern themselves with the underlying hardware details. One key feature of DAVE and the DAVE APPs is the 'resource solver' for the efficient and conflict free management of the available hardware resources.
