New and enhanced features accelerate embedded development

16-06-2023 | Infineon | Test & Measurement

Infineon Technologies AG has released ModusToolbox 3.1 with enhanced capabilities providing developers with more features at their fingertips to create software solutions for their hardware designs.

The solution adds a new dashboard application as a central 'getting started' resource with links to key documentation, training modules, video tutorials and relevant community forums. The dashboard supplies a guided workflow for developing a new embedded project for varied IDEs, including Microsoft Visual Studio Code, IAR Embedded Workbench, Arm MDK (µVision IDE), or Eclipse IDE as part of ModusToolbox. The BSP Assistant, which has been greatly updated in the latest version, incorporates a new user interface for creating a BSP employing a device-centric flow. The latest version supports reference BSP from the company's library of development boards.

"Learning a new development tool can seem like a challenging task," said Clark Jarvis, Software and Tools Technical Marketer of Infineon. "Infineon's ModusToolbox now includes a robust dashboard that gives developers key resources to make getting started easier than before. Even more, there are significant enhancements in the way the tools support development on final customer hardware using the BSP Assistant. This allows ModusToolbox to support the developer from start to finish."

The software is a comprehensive suite of development tools and embedded run-time assets that deliver a flexible and efficient development environment. It supports a seamless transition from the evaluation and prototyping phase using its development kits to creating a custom BSP through the edit-compile-debug application development cycle and, finally, on to final product deployment.
