Now available: Release 16.0.0 for Arctic Core & Arctic Studio

There is a new release available for ARCCORE’s automotive software development kit, which includes the embedded platform Arctic Core and the development tool Arctic Studio. Version 16.0.0 provides extended support and enhanced features, e.g. for Functional Safety development.

Arctic Core

With the latest release, Arctic Core comes with support for Aurix TC399, which allows developers to use Infineon TC399 with Arctic Core Basic Software with an MCAL from Infineon.
Furthermore, DET, E2E, CRC have been updated to the latest AUTOSAR version 4.3.
And there’s more support added: Amongst others

  • for postbuild for ECUs with partial networking on CAN, while the postbuild for BswM, ComM and CanNm has been updated,
  • for OS service component to access OS API from the application,
  • for accessing DID data via sender/receiver interface,
  • for transmission mode selection using API Com_SwitchIpduTxMode.in Com, and
  • for Dynamic DLCs in CanIf.

Arctic Studio
The latest version of Arctic Studio comes with a further enhanced Extract Importer, which is shortening the time integrators need from receiving an extract to a full BSW configuration:

  • Changes made by the importer are easily identifiable in the BSW-Editor.
  • New option to automatically remove old, no longer imported configuration from previous imports which greatly reduces the clean-up time when receiving new Extract.

Additional enhancements can be found in TcpIp, SoAd, Com, PduR and other modules, decreasing the need for manual configuration after an import. Plus, importing modules CanTrcv, BswM and CanTp is now also supported. With a new option the integrator can easily choose between traditional Com and LdCom.

The most interesting improvements of Arctic Studio 16.0.0 can be found for Functional Safety, including features

  • to generate ASIL-compliant code for individual partitions, decreasing the difficulties of mixing ASIL and QM code together,
  • to prevent interference, when consistently writing data between ASIL and QM memory segments, and
  • to improve data integrity, by using end-to-end protection with checksums for ASIL-classified sender/receiver communication in the RTE.

However, the new RTE Generator allows for an easier scheduling and enhanced modelling possibilities
