Newbie: Can CMake be used to generate embedded systems?

We are currently using a home brewed python based buildsystem.
The compiler is the Tasking Compiler which is used to compile sources
for embedded system (Infineon Aurix Tricore 32 bit TC27x controller).

I want to switch to a more professional build system and though about CMake.

Does anyone have experience on how to configure CMake to build such systems?

Any support is appreciated.

Kind regards


AFAIK, the Tasking compiler needs supported in CMake first. See this thread:

where someone was able to get somewhere at least.
