dSPACE now offers Version 4.3 of TargetLink, its industry-proven production code generator. In addition to improving a large number of details for working more efficiently, the new version gives users a completely revised Property Manager with improved usability, optimized workflows for modular development, and makes it easier to comply with the autocode rules of MISRA-C:2012. Additionally, TargetLink 4.3 offers comprehensive enhancements in the area of modeling algorithms, which greatly simplifies the work of function and software developers.
New Property Manager with Improved Usability
TargetLink’s graphical user interface now contains a completely revised Property Manager, which provides production code developers with an even better overview of their models and the associated block and object properties. Some of the new features include detailed filter options, automatic validation, and error indication. As a result, working with large models is significantly simpler and the usability has notably improved.
Optimized Workflows for Modular Development
For modular development, TargetLink 4.3 offers optimized workflows for creating, integrating, and reusing individual components. The flexible organization of the generated artifacts and the central management of all components in a project makes it possible to conveniently define the overall project and simplifies working in distributed teams.
Decreased Effort to Achieve MISRA Compliance, Support of AUTOSAR 4.3
Another innovation that is included in TargetLink 4.3 is the support for the AUTOSAR standard 4.3 as well as additional powerful mechanisms to partition data and code into individual memory segments. This is particularly helpful for safety-critical projects, as is the fact that TargetLink complies with all autocoding rules in the Mandatory and Required categories of MISRA C:2012. This significantly reduces the work involved in documenting potential deviations from the rules.
TargetLink, dSPACE's production code generator, generates highly efficient C code directly from Simulink/Stateflow models. It supports efficient, modular development and is ISO 26262-, ISO 25119- and IEC 61508-certified. Since its launch in 1999, TargetLink has been used in numerous production projects all over the world. TargetLink’s outstanding assets include its excellent code quality, strong software design and test features, high reliability, development process integration, and support of standards such as AUTOSAR, ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2), Functional Mockup Interface (FMI), and Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA).
dSPACE develops and distributes integrated hardware and software tools for developing and testing electronic control units and mechatronic controls. The application areas for dSPACE systems are in the automotive industry, as well as in drives technology, aerospace, and other industrial sectors.
