HighTec announces agreement with Synopsys

Posted 19 September 2023

HighTec EDV Systeme is further expanding its support for Infineon AURIX TC4x through a distribution and support agreement with Synopsys. HighTec can now offer its development platform for AURIX together with the Synopsys ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit for AURIX TC4x as an optimized complete solution for Infineon AURIX TC4x. Both compiler tools, from Synopsys and from HighTec, are based on the LLVM open-source technology and hence will seamlessly work together. Automotive embedded software developers will thus receive an all-inclusive compiler and software package with support for the development of a range of applications, including zone controllers, battery management systems in electromobility, driver assistance systems and even AI applications.

Being a new distribution partner to Synopsys, HighTec is the first compiler supplier for AURIX that can offer today full TC4x support covering all cores including a complete PPU development package from one source.

“With the growing complexity in automotive electronics systems, simplifying the software development process is essential,” said John Koeter, senior vice president of product management and strategy for IP at Synopsys. “The collaboration between Synopsys and HighTec helps to ensure that users of Infineon’s AURIX TC4x microcontroller have access to a broad and optimized tool suite. The combination of HighTec’s C/C++ development platform with the Synopsys ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit eases the design of safety-critical automotive systems and accelerates time-to-market.”

“We welcome the collaboration between Synopsys and HighTec. With HighTec as our long-term partner for TriCore compilers and PDH services, it will be easier for many customers to develop software for the PPU when the HighTec Development Platform also supports Synopsys’ ARC MetaWare tools”, said Thomas Böhm, Senior Vice President Automotive Microcontroller at Infineon.

“By cooperating with Synopsys, we can further expand our strengths in tool and software support for AURIX microcontrollers,” said Mario Cupelli, CTO of HighTec EDV Systeme GmbH. “HighTec can fully serve a wide range of customers with direct supported seamless LLVM based tool chain for the TC4x family which is a huge advantage especially for safety-critical automotive applications.”
