Universal Debug Engine 2.4 Offers DAP Supports AUDO FUTURE, ST32 MCUs

pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme announces immediate availability of complete DAP support for Infineon’s AUDO FUTURE family of 32-bit automotive microcontrollers with the final release of the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) 2.4 and a new special cable to the target system. The Device Access Port (DAP), as new debug interface, enables via two or three lines a significantly higher data transfer rate of up to 80 MHz, compared to the present JTAG interface. With the use of all three channels, a high level of performance and signal integrity is achieved with two differential data lines.

Universal Debug Engine 2.4 - pls Programmierbare Logik & SystemeIn addition, the UDE2.4 is also available for users of STMicroelectronics’ STM32 family of microcontrollers. The Thumb2 instruction set, the on-chip debug units as well as the programming of the on-chip FLASH – which can be from 32 kilobytes up to 512 kilobytes – is supported.

Together with the Universal Access Device 2 (UAD2) hardware family, the UDE 2.4 now supports a wide range of popular families of 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers from Infineon (TriCore, XC2000, XE166), Freescale (MPC55xx, MAC71xx, i.MX31), AMCC (PPC440), STMicroelectronics (ST10, STR7, STR9, STM32), Marvell/Intel (PXA255 and PXA27x) as well as additional ARM7 and ARM9 derivates from NXP, ATMEL, NetSilicon and Texas Instruments.

The final release of the UDE 2.4 is immediately available for customers with a maintenance agreement via the download area of pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH’s newly designed Internet presence.

About pls Programmierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH
pls Programierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH, located in Lauta, Germany, was founded in 1990 by Thomas Bauch and Dr. Stefan Weisse. The company is among the worldwide leading suppliers of software debugging solutions and complete development tools for the 16-bit and 32-bit microcontroller families from Infineon Technologies and STMicroelectronics as well as a number of different ARM7/ARM9 derivatives. The innovative software architecture of the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) guarantees optimal conditions for the debugging of modern System-on-Chip (SoC) based systems. The complementary equipment family Universal Access Device (UAD), with transfer rates of up to 3.5 Mbytes per second, opens up a fully new dimension in data download speeds.
