Keil PK166 with extended Infineon XE166 Support
Keil extends the C166® product line with support for the Infineon XE166 Low-end and Ultra Low-End series. The XE166 Low-end and Ultra Low-End series expands Infineon's 16-bit XE166 microcontroller family to provide more scalable performance for cost-sensitive industrial applications which typically run with an 8-bit microcontroller.
The new family members called XE160, XE161 & XE162 offer the following specific features in addition to well known timer, capture-compare and communication peripherals:
The µVision IDE directly interfaces to Infineon DAVE™ a code generation tool for peripheral initializations and basic low level drivers. It is very easy to import the generated code into µVision and to synchronize both tools.
The XE166 Low-end and Ultra Low-End series features a single pin DAP (Debug Access Port) that connects to µVision using the Infineon miniWiggler. The µVision IDE/Debugger supports Program Debugging and Flash Programming including the Boot Mode Index (BMI). All device features can be programmed and tested in a single environnment which eliminates the need for external tools or utilities.
"The Keil C166 Professional Developer's Kit is a very popular compiler solution for C166®-based microcontrollers. The latest version produces very high code quality for the Infineon XE166 Low-end and Ultra Low-End series," said said Manfred Choutka, Regional Marketing Manager for Microcontrollers at Infineon Technologies. "With its µVision IDE, Keil also provides complete support and a direct interface to work with the Infineon code generation tool DAvE and with the miniWiggler which features an innovative single-pin debug interface DAP."
Keil™, the tools division of ARM®, makes C/C++ compilers,debuggers, integrated environments, real-time kernels, simulation models, and boards for ARM, 8051, C166, and 251 processor families. The comprehensive range supports standard microcontrollers (MCU), smartcards, application specific standard parts (ASSP), and complex system-on-chip (SoC) devices.
