SEGGER’s new SmartMSD makes USB file transfer easy

SEGGER’s new Smart Mass Storage Device (SmartMSD) uses the proven MSD standard to easily stream files to and from USB devices. A simple Drag and Drop is all it takes.

The active file system technology employed in SmartMSD is unique. Once the USB device is connected to the host, files can be read or written to the application without the need for dedicated storage memory. The SmartMSD software analyzes what operation is performed by the host and passes this to the application layer of the embedded target, which then performs the appropriate action.

This makes the software very flexible and allows using it for various types of applications and purposes, with no additional software or drivers necessary on the host side.

The most common application is to easily deliver a firmware update. Upon dragging and dropping the new firmware image onto the SmartMSD drive, the SmartMSD hands it to the application’s flashloader. This flashloader programs the image to the flash of the target device. Once completed, the target device restarts and now makes use of the new firmware image. This process may also be coupled with SEGGER’s emSecure ensuring authenticity of the new update.

XJTAG goes dynamic in latest release

CAMBRIDGE, UK, 14 April 2015 — XJTAG, a world leading supplier of boundary scan technology, today announced the release of the latest update to its software suite. The focus of this release is on increasing the flexibility of JTAG chain control to make it easier for engineers to access the full JTAG capabilities of their boards and so achieve maximum test coverage.

Dynamic chain profiling makes it easier to initialise boards with multiple JTAG chains, in which a device in one JTAG chain controls power supplies or reset lines for JTAG devices in the other chains.

During flash programming it is now much easier to set up XJTAG to only clock JTAG data through the chain that is needed for the programming operation, leaving the other chain(s) held in their current state. In some situations this can remove the need to clock hundreds of bits of data per-scan, and can significantly speed up testing/programming.

Simon Payne, CEO commented "This release of XJTAG continues our programme of updates that deliver performance improvements for the world leading companies which use XJTAG throughout their product lifecycle. On a recent project for a client we were able to dynamically change the JTAG setup to only include the single JTAG device that was connected to a flash. This in turn allowed us to make a dramatic saving in a manufacturer’s production time by reducing the programming time of a very complex board from 13 minutes to 3 minutes."

In addition to making the system faster and more flexible, XJTAG has increased the capabilities of the XJLink2 JTAG controller by allowing the user to describe connections from the XJLink2 to the PCB under test. "Spare" pins on the XJLink2 which are not being used as TAP pins can now be configured to take part in interconnection testing in order to increase test coverage.

XJTAG has also continued to invest in the XJEase language which underpins all of its device testing – v3.3 sees the introduction of an all-new compiler which provides a significant boost to performance in some applications and a decrease of CPU load in others.

To see how XJTAG can help you when prototyping, designing or manufacturing your electronics please contact us to arrange a demonstration. XJTAG is currently offering a fully-featured trial, including a free board set up.

Altium announces TASKING C compiler for the next generation BOSCH GTM-IP MCS
  New compiler will complement TASKING tool suites for AURIX, RH850 and Power Architecture  

The GTM IP module forms a generic timer platform for complex applications in the automotive industry like power train, power steering, chassis and transmission control. To serve these different application domains, the GTM provides a wide range of timer functions like counters, multi-action capture/compare, PWM functions, duty-cycle measurement and many more. The GTM also features internal RISC-like programmable cores for data processing and complex output sequence generation. The IP is designed to run with minimal CPU interaction and to unload the CPU from handling interrupt service requests as much as possible.

Generic interfaces and the hierarchical system architecture make the GTM an ideal solution as IP core for various microcontroller architectures. The GTM has been licensed to semiconductor manufacturers for incorporation of the core on automotive microcontrollers like the AURIX (Infineon Technologies), RH850 (Renesas) and Power Architecture (Freescale and STMicroelectronics).

While first generation GTM silicon is currently available through semiconductor vendors, Bosch developed already the third generation, that will deliver significant functional enhancements. These improvements not only enabled the development of the TASKING C compiler, but will also allow for the GTM's features set to be exploited more efficiently and considerably easier by programming it at C language level. Bosch has supported Altium on the development of a dedicated C compiler, based on the robust and highly efficient TASKING Viper compiler technology “VX”.

TASKING’s Viper technology ensures compatibility to other popular TASKING compilers and eases migration of applications developed for other architectures. TASKING compilers have built up a proven reputation with highly efficient and robust code for automotive applications like power train, body control, chassis control and safety critical applications. Similar to TASKING’s other compiler solutions, the new compiler for the GTM will be integrated into Eclipse-based IDEs, but it will also be accessible from the command line. A simulator debugger for the GTM will complement the compiler, allowing developers to test GTM code without hardware being available.

The first stable release of the C compiler for the GTM/MCS will be available in March. In the course of the year the new C compiler will be included in and fully integrated into new releases of TASKING’s automotive tool suites for Infineon’s TriCore/AURIX, Freescale’s Power Architecture Qorriva, STMicroelectronics’ Power Architecture SPC5xx and Renesas’ RH850. These TASKING tool suites take again another step forward ahead of alternative solutions, excelling on code optimizations, robustness, feature-richness and unparalleled completeness through dedicated compilers and debuggers supporting the main microcontroller and integrated additional cores.
Through this industry-unique TASKING C compiler for the GTM, Altium reconfirms its position as leading compiler vendor for the development of automotive applications. No other vendor brings such a comprehensive portfolio of compilers for these market-leading automotive microcontrollers and their respective add-on cores.

TASKING’s existing ISO 26262 Support Program will cover the new GTM compiler through the dedicated toolset offerings for the various main microcontrollers, enabling customers to achieve certification for functional safety standards such as ISO 26262 and others.

 
 
Altium announces new release of the TASKING C compiler for Renesas RH850

Altium recognized a strong interest from its automotive customers to support the high performance Renesas RH850 microcontroller family through its robust and efficient TASKING VX compiler technology. The TASKING compilers have industry leading code optimization techniques and proven-in-use track records in automotive applications like powertrain, body control, chassis control, including safety critical applications. TASKING’s multi-core support implementation was jointly developed with a leading Tier-1 supplier in the powertrain area and is regarded as one of the most well-respected and advanced solutions.

The new release of the TASKING toolset brings support for the RH850/C1x, RH850/D1x, RH850/E1x, RH850/P1x and RH850/R1x device variants in addition to the RH850/F1x series that was supported already. While Renesas continues to widen its scalable range of RH850 products, Altium will work with Renesas to add support to the toolset for future RH850 variants, including specialized solutions for new on-chip modules.

A major addition to the new release of the toolset is support for the Renesas E1 On-Chip debugging emulator, next to the Instruction Set Simulator debugger. The debugger’s graphical user interface is seamlessly integrated into the Eclipse-based IDE and accessible through the debugger perspective. This brings to the developer a single coding and debugging front-end for RH850 application development, which is both comprehensive and very cost-effective compared to separate solutions.

New code generation optimizations have been added to this new compiler release, such as MIL linking and code compaction (reverse inlining), techniques that have proven to be highly effective in TASKING’s compilers for automotive microcontrollers. Measurements on a wide range of different application sources, including powertrain applications, show improvements up to 17% in code compactness.

Features of the TASKING VX-toolset for RH850 include:
  • Eclipse based IDE with integrated compiler and debugger

  • Debugging functionalities through instruction-set simulator and on hardware through Renesas’ On-Chip debugging emulator E1
  • Compliant to the Renesas ABI as well as relevant and up-to-date industry standards
  • Backed by Altium’s ISO 26262 Support Program

The RH850 microcontroller family offers rich functional safety and embedded security features needed for new and advanced automotive applications. Altium supports these features and application requirements through its ISO 26262 Support Program. This includes various cost and lead-time efficient solutions to help customers achieve certification for functional safety standards such as ISO 26262 and others. As part of the certification process a manufacturer has to assess the required level of confidence in the utilized software tools such as the TASKING RH850 toolset. Altium enables this through the availability of a Compiler Qualification Kit as well as optional ISO 26262 Compiler Qualification Services.

The VX-toolset for RH850 release v2.2 is available on PC/Windows as of March, with other platforms supported on request. TASKING’s new C compiler for the GTM will be integrated into the toolset later in 2015.
