Infineon XMC4500 Industrial Microcontrollers and Comprehensive Range of Development Tools Now Available
”The XMC4000 family is more closely tailored to industrial customers’ requirements than any other competing product: it offers high-performance peripherals and a comprehensive development environment that makes familiarization convenient, time-saving and free of charge,” said Dr. Stephan Zizala, Senior Director of Industrial and Multimarket Microcontrollers at Infineon Technologies AG. ”The XMC4500 series reaps the benefits of our more than 30 years of experience in microcontroller development for industrial applications. XMC4500 has timer modules optimized for electric motor control, fast ADCs, integrated delta sigma demodulators, fast and robust Flash memory and an extended temperature range of up to 125 °C.”
In common with all members of the XMC4000 family, the XMC4500 series helps to improve the energy efficiency of the systems, supports a large number of communication standards and reduces complexity during software development. To this end, Infineon offers the free DAVE 3 integrated development environment. In addition to code generation based on DAVE apps, the development environment features a GNU compiler, a debugger and data visualization tools. A modular design kit is also available. Up to three additional application boards – for communication with other systems, for actuators and sensors, and for human-machine interface (HMI) functions – can be connected to the basic design board, depending on the respective application requirements.
