- TargetLink 3.3: Expanded features for AUTOSAR-compliant development
- Certified for use in ISO 26262- and IEC 61508-compliant projects
Melbourn, Hertfordshire, March 12, 2012:TargetLink 3.3, the new version of dSPACE's production code generator, provides elaborately expanded features for AUTOSAR-compliant development of electronic control units, and supports the latest AUTOSAR standards 4.0 and 3.2.
TargetLink 3.3 simplifies modular development with even more powerful incremental code generation and improved data management.
dSPACE has also enhanced TargetLink's user friendliness and its integration with MATLAB/Simulink. These features make model-based design with automatic code generation even more efficient, for AUTOSAR-compliant projects, conventional projects, ISO 26262- or IEC 61508-compliant development projects.
Expanded AUTOSAR Support
The revised AUTOSAR module for TargetLink 3.3 offers users a wide variety of features to develop software components according to AUTOSAR standards 4.0 and 3.2. The concept of native AUTOSAR support in TargetLink is expanded, and includes component design and AUTOSAR data management, implementation, and component tests so that various stages of embedded software development can be covered.
For AUTOSAR-compliant development in combination with dSPACE’s system architecture software SystemDesk, TargetLink now provides increased user convenience and even more transparency, due to the concept of software component container (SWC) exchange.
Flexible Work, Even with Large Models
TargetLink 3.3. is available as a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version, and it supports multiple MATLAB releases. The new 64-bit version of TargetLink is especially useful for simplifying development work with large models.
Modular, component-based work with TargetLink is significantly optimized by including a more powerful incremental code generation for subsystems and referenced models. TargetLink's own mechanism for reusing generated code is extended substantially.
Improved Data Management and Modeling
The data management system in the dSPACE Data Dictionary is considerably extended by multiple workspaces with Diff&Merge functionality. This protects and simplifies iterative data exchange with other tools (round trip), for easier integration into the tool chain. Further new features in multirate modeling, life cycle analysis for increased code efficiency, and various modeling and usability enhancements round off this newest TargetLink version.
