In TargetLink 5.0, software developers can generate Adaptive Autosar models and the code required for them. The initial focus in supporting the new standard is on model reuse of non- and classic Autosar models. This means that TargetLink users can use models they previously created in Non or Classic Autosar for Adaptive Autosar with TargetLink 5.0 or higher. This makes it easier to enter the new Adaptive Autosar world. Adaptive Autosar is also modeled in the TargetLink Data Dictionary in the same way as Classic Autosar, so its use remains as simple as ever.
After the first release of Adaptive Autosar, preliminary versions of future TargetLink versions with Adaptive Autosar support will be made available soon. This will allow users to test and evaluate the advantages of the new functionalities at an early stage of development. "Our goal is to incorporate our customers' requirements into further development at an early stage so that we can provide them with exactly the solution they need in a timely manner," says Sascha Ridder, Product Engineer TargetLink. After iteratively extended pre-release versions, the functionalities for Adaptive Autosar support will be integrated into the dSPACE B release in the fall.
