Is IDA the best disassembler for a raw Tricore TC1791 (or similar) binary? I see there are several others floating around.

Which programs are going to give us the most complete ASM from a raw binary? We can get mostly what we need, but if there are better tools I will give them a go.

  • Yes, IDA Pro is the best. There is also a newly released tool from the NSA (yes, that NSA) called Ghidra which may support the TriCore. Where/how did you obtain your binary? – Rick Stievenart Sep 4 at 17:00
  • Trying to compile that now! Build process is pretty clunky. – rolls Sep 6 at 1:24
  • Update. Ghidra is fantastic, a worthy contender to IDA. You need the current dev branch to get tricore support though. – rolls Sep 17 at 5:28
  • I got our binary from reading it from a 2015 Mustang PCM (TC1791). – rolls Sep 17 at 5:30

Ghidra (NSA open source tool) is an excellent competitor to IDA. It is free and open source as well. I highly recommend it. The current dev branch has TC17xx and TC-29x support.
