Lauterbach, the World’s leading supplier of debug and trace tools, is pleased to announce the addition of NXP’s new S32K3 MCU family to the growing list of processors supported by their TRACE32® debug system. TRACE32 now provides full support for all members of the S32K3 family in single-core, multi-core, and lockstep configurations supporting up to ASIL D. 

S32K3 MCUs are designed for automotive applications such as body electronics, battery management systems and emerging zonal and domain control ECUs and incorporate advanced safety and connectivity features to facilitate efficient and secure over-the-air (OTA) software updates. Enabling this is a Hardware Security Engine (HSE) that supports AES-128/192/256, RSA and ECC encryption with secure key storage, secure boot, and side-channel protection functions. TRACE32 tools support secure application debugging and trace capability for all the S32K3 MCU’s cores. 

Coupled with the Lauterbach Tool Qualification Support Kit (TQSK), this provides developers with a proven, qualified set of tools for their ISO 26262 ASIL D applications allowing them to leverage the best in class for microprocessors and development tools. 

According to General Manager, Norbert Weiss, “We are pleased to, once again, be able to offer class leading tools to our customers. Our collaboration with NXP has allowed both companies to provide the optimal solution for automotive engineers who are delivering the next generation of advances in vehicle technology. Having, trusted, reliable tools available from day one helps our customers get their designs to market faster and more cost effectively.”
