Infineon/iSYSTEM TriCore™ AURIX™ Webinar Series - Session IV – Cache Performance Analysis via Trace
An efficient utilization of on-chip Cache Memories can significantly enhance the performance of an embedded systems. The Infineon TriCore™ AURIX™ microcontroller features both tightly-coupled program as well as data caches.
In this Webinar we first explain briefly how caches work in general. We then provide some basic guidance for how and when to use caches in AURIX™ devices. In the second part of the Webinar we demonstrate how the Data Cache Performance can be analyzed by means of trace, by measuring parameters such as function runtime, but also parameters such as Cache Hit/Miss ratios and Clocks per Instruction (CPI) over time.

We empower embedded software engineers to do it right!
Our BlueBox Technology stands for fast and easy microcontroller access via any kind of debug interface. Complemented with integrated development and test software winIDEA/testIDEA it provides access to on-target timing information. Embedded software engineers can review application timing, analyze real-time operating system states, and undertake code coverage to prove that their products do what they were built to do.
