Hitex Development Tools announces comprehensive support for the newly introduced XMC4000 family from Infineon Technologies. Frank Grobe, Managing Director at Hitex, said: "Infineon now combines for the first time its competence in application-optimized peripherals with an ARM Cortex-M4 core. As a development partner, we not only support the XMC4000 family with necessary tools, but also with consulting and the involvement of our partners".
With the MCU's availability, Hitex provides a complete offering of development support. This comprises evaluation boards, consulting and training as well as compilers, debuggers, and software. This also ensures that Hitex’s customers benefit from the long-lasting cooperation with Keil/ARM, since the corresponding Keil tools are also distributed by Hitex.
Reinhard Keil, Director of MCU Tools, ARM, said: “Keil has a long history supporting Infineon microcontroller families and is providing industry leading tools for XC800 and XC166/XC2000. The new Infineon XMC4000 family is the natural upgrade path for our users. We are very pleased to be working with Hitex”.
Dr. Stephan Zizala, Senior Director Industrial and Multimarket Microcontrollers, Infineon Technologies, said: “Due to the close cooperation between our partners Hitex and Keil, our customers profit from a perfectly synchronized portfolio for a rapid project start. This enables them to become quickly acquainted with the XMC4000 family and also provides quick and easy use of Infineon’s C166 or XC800 families which dramatically reduces time-to-market for new designs.”
