This page contains the latest information and releases of the TARDISS and PRO-SIL TestBench tools for the CIC61508F and SAKCIC61508.

Please click the links to download the files.

TARDISS v2.9.9 TARDISS is the GUI for PRO-SIL XC2000 users, although it can also be used with the PRO-SIL TriCore. This release adds a HEX export function for the DFLASH calibration data. The resulting HEX file can be programmed into the CIC61508 DFLASH using the Infineon FLOAD tool. The TARDISS HEXfiles for the various SafeTkits are included in this file so you do not need to download the individual HEXfiles listed below. It will also fix reported problems with comport detection on some PCs. If you already have the TARDISS 2.8 version installed, please de-install it from your PC before installing the v2.9.x.

PROSIL_TESTBENCH_v2.9.5. This is the TARDISS tailored to SafeTcore-Tricore users as it omits the task monitor and data compare displays. It is otherwise functionally identical and uses the same HEX driver files.
