The folks from Altium now have their feet firmly planted in two camps. They are targeting the hardware side of things with their Altium Designer 3D PCB/FPGA suite of tools. They also have their TASKING suite of embedded software development tools.
All of it brings us to the fact that Altium has just announced a new release of its TASKING C compiler solution targeted at automotive applications. This new release supports Power Architecture-based automotive chips from the Freescale Qorivva/5xxx series and STMicroelectronics SPC5 series of microcontrollers, including the multi-core variants.
TASKING C Compiler for Power Architecture MCUs.
The combination of Altium Designer and TASKING embedded software development tool suites provides a very compelling system (hardware plus software) design solution. (Click here for more information on Altium's Power Architecture software development tools.)
