TargetLink®: More than just a production code generator
- High-quality production code generation directly from Simulink®/Stateflow®
- Built-in simulation and testing
- AUTOSAR support
- Certified for IEC 61508 and ISO 26262
- TargetLink Partner Program offering complementary third-party products for TargetLink
High-Quality Code for Mass Production
Following successful rapid control prototyping, target implementation is performed. Functions specified in graphical form are converted to production C code and implemented on the electronic control unit (ECU) together with the drivers and real-time operating system. Automatic production code generation gives effective support in this process. TargetLink generates production code automatically for graphically specified functions straight from MATLAB®/ Simulink/Stateflow. This shortens coding and development times drastically and contributes to a considerable improvement in the quality of the production code.
Criteria for Successful Production Code
There are several criteria for the generated code. It must be:
- Very efficient, whether fixed-point or floating-point
- Configurable and adaptable to company specific coding styles
- Easy to integrate with legacy code, base software, and other application software in existing ECUs
Proven Code Generation with TargetLink
TargetLink, the well-established production code generation software from dSPACE, meets all the criteria for production code generation and helps function and software developers to get their control strategies from block diagrams to a production-intent ECU faster and more reliably, without compromising code efficiency.
