Compiler Update for HighTec C/C++ Development Platform for Infineon AURIX TC4xx for Safety-relevant Applications
Faster build, advanced code optimization for AURIX MCUs, faster safety certification
Saarbrücken/Germany, 11 October 2021 – HighTec EDV-Systeme GmbH presents a new version of the compiler of the HighTec C/C++ Development Platform for Infineon's AURIX TC4xx. The current version 5.4.0 convinces with a complete integration of the TC4xx family, its even faster build system and the advanced code optimizations based on the architecture-specific functions of the AURIX microcontrollers. Sub-processors like HSM, GTM/MCS or PPU and other application specific architectures are also fully supported.

With the compiler update, HighTec accelerates the development and certification of safety-relevant applications, for example in industrial automation, but especially in driver assistance systems and functions for autonomous driving. HighTec is the only compiler provider to be an "Infineon Preferred Design House"; the HighTec C/C++ Development Platform is used by leading automotive manufacturers and Tier One suppliers.

The HighTec C/C++ Development Platform is a multi-architecture and multi-core compiler suite with support for TriCore, AURIX, AURIX 2G, Power Architecture (PowerPC), Arm, RISC-V and Renesas architectures. The compiler is based on the innovative LLVM open-source compiler technology developed by major IT companies; it is available for both Windows and Linux platforms. Extension with third-party Eclipse plug-ins is quite easy, as is integration into custom IDEs using the command line version.

The integrated Content Manager of the HighTec C/C++ Development Platform allows fast access to BSP (Board Support Package), integrated examples, safety libraries and driver packages such as MCAL and ILLD (Infineon Low Level Driver). Through the HighTec Library Qualification Kit, standard libraries that can be utilized without open-source license restrictions can be used for safety applications.

For the  tool qualification of the C/C++ compiler according to ISO26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL 3, HighTec offers their customers a Tool Qualification Kit (Q-Kit). Numerous examples, tutorials and training documents help developers get started and work with the HighTec C/C++ Development Platform.

The new compiler version 5.4.0 for the HighTec C/C++ Development Platform for Infineon AURIX TC4xx is now available, also as evaluation version. Further information and download options for registered license holders at
