The design of powertrain controllers is among the most challenging problems in automotive electronics because of the complexity of the functions that the system has to support, like safety aspects, and tight cost limits. Time-to-market requirements and continuously changing specifications have contributed to the migration of most functions to software implementations. Magneti Marelli Powertrain is developing a model-based design methodology clearly defined by a set of successive refinement steps from a level of abstraction as high as possible down to the details needed for the final implementation. In this methodology framework, TargetLink has been successfully used.
