Silexica Expands Tools to Support Automotive Innovation

Cologne, Germany – March 23, 2017 – Silexica, the industry leader in multicore software design automation addressing complex, multicore platforms, today announced they have expanded the SLX Tool Suite to include programming support for multicore automotive applications. The tools are currently in evaluation with early access customers and will be available for general release in Q2 2017.

The SLX Tool Suite has been proven in many industry applications and based upon discussions and work with major automotive suppliers and industry standards groups for the past year. The company is now extending its software development support to automotive hardware/software system architects and designers struggling with the complex challenges of multicore applications. Designers experience increased efficiency in risk analysis, programming and code distribution with the SLX Tool Suite technology that includes: automatic parallelism extraction from legacy code, automatic distribution to heterogeneous platforms, and faster software/hardware design space explorations for future products.

“In our ongoing commitment to build automotive products that will lead to a safer, better future, we seek best-in-class tools and technologies to help us achieve our goals,” said Bert Böddeker, Senior Technical Manager at DENSO INTERNATIONAL EUROPE. “Silexica’s tools provide efficient programming of today’s complex multicore hardware platforms.”

As providers of the popular AURIX multi-core automotive platform based upon TriCore, we appreciate the efficiency and automation that Silexica’s tools bring to the complex task of programming and distributing code over multi-processor based platforms,” said Jens Harnisch, Tool Line Manager at Infineon Technologies AG.

“As we speak with brilliant automotive industry leaders, we understand that the complexity of programming and code distribution for automotive applications will continue to increase dramatically as multicore platforms include hundreds of heterogeneous processors and co-processors,” said Maximilian Odendahl, Silexica CEO. “Our tools bring a new level of automation to this challenge while cutting development time and increasing efficiency.”
