With a new, optional module licensed from Mathworks, TargetLink 4.4 now supports the requirement of developers to describe algorithms and behavior directly with Matlab code in a Simulink model. The corresponding TargetLink Module for Matlab Code can be used to map this modeling process. This makes it possible for production code developers to generate TargetLink's highly efficient C-series code directly from control functions described with Matlab code in Simulink models for the first time. This allows developers to use a further resource for modeling in TargetLink in addition to predefined blocks and state machines.
Another new feature is that production code generated with TargetLink can be validated and tested on a real-time system supported by the ConfigurationDesk implementation software. In this way, users can immediately see how the developed code works in a real-world environment.
TargetLink 4.4 complies with the Autosar standard 4.3.1 and offers optimized options for designing Autosar software components. In ARXML export, for example, the Autosar split element can be used to better separate the roles of software architects and developers. In addition, the representation of model libraries in the user interface has been improved, which also simplifies collaboration in distributed development. For processor-in-the-loop simulation, TargetLink 4.4 now supports Lauterbach Instruction Set Simulators (ISS), so that compiled production code can be executed as a target directly on an ISS without hardware, thus validating it.
