Hi I'm trying to interface SD card (Transcend 1GB and 2GB) through SPI to Infineon controller. It is not initializing, infact i'm not getting response from SD card for CMD0 (0x40). when i'm going through some web site, it is given that not all SD cards support SPI communication. I wanted to know whether these SD cards what i'm using will support SPI? and also the initialization sequence wil...

I see Infineon release (early samples of) another iteration on their proven XC166 series, the XC2200 family : "most of the XC226x?s instructions can be executed in just one machine cycle which requires 15ns at 66 MHz CPU clock. For example, shift and rotate instructions are always processed during one machine cycle independent of the number of bits to be shifted. Also multiplication ...

Good afternoon: I need to perform some unit testing and I'm totally lost. Right now I'm working in two projects. In the first one I use a Freescale MC908AS60A microcontroller with Cosmic compiler and the other one a Infineon XC161 with Tasking C166 compiler. The manager is asking me to perform Unit testing on host and on target. I have been able to perform some testings on host, but I ne...

Hello All, is anybody familiar with the Tasking debugger for ARM Cortex? Can it display variables during program execution? I installed Infineon "DAVE" which uses the Tasking Debugger in Eclipse, but as soon as I run the target program, the variable values vanish and reappear just when I stop the target. TIA, Oliver -- Oliver Betz, Munich despammed.com is broken, use Reply-To:...


QAM tuner ic: who makes one?

Hi all, I was looking at Broadcom's parts for (cable) tuner/receivers. I tried to find other mfrs that make similar products. I found Infineon makes some stuff for tuners but not the QAM kind for cable. Who else makes QAM tuner chips? Maybe even simpler than Broadcom since they have all the goodies to get pay per view events and the on-line tv guide on the same die. Thanks

Hello All, I am using C51 and my code runs on Infineon controller. For company policy reason I am not revealing the exact controller and sorry about that. I would like to improve the speed. I was using the large memory model for this compiler and now I use small memory model. This has improved speed a lot. I would like to know if there are some more such settings for this compiler to imp...

Hello, I am doing the Dhrystone benchmark on a TC1796A microcontroller from Infineon with different compilers (TASKING, Hightec-RT GNU GCC). Both compilers are set to produce highest speed optimized code, still I only get about 15 DMIPs with GNU GCC and about 20 DMIPs with TASKING. CPU is running at 150MHz, 75MHz system clock, programs run from external SRAM; no difference (as it should be...

Hello, the very old timer intel 8253 and 8254 could be used in mode 1 as a hardware triggerable one-shot with programmable pulse length. Now I am using the infineon 80c167 and need a one-shot with programmable pulse length and hardware triggering too. There are a lot of counters T1 to T8 and there is the Capture/Compare unit too, but I found nothing about one-shots in the user's manua...

We use an infineon c167cs with 16 bit ram+flash and some 8 bit peripherals. The processor has the pins wrl and wrh/bhe. If we choose wrl+wrh to control the 16 bit RAM (bit 7=wrcfg=1 in syscon0), the 8 bit peripherals cannot be written on odd adresses (it seems). Do we have to put in some external logic or is there a configuration trick to use wrl on all adresses in 8 bit windows? I could not ...
