dSPACE releases TargetLink Version 3.4
Supports AUTOSAR 4.0.3 and 3.2.2; interfaces with dSPACE VEOS® and SYNECT®
dSPACE has released Version 3.4 of its production code generator TargetLink®. The new version is said to provide extensive new features for modular software design and to support the latest AUTOSAR versions. TargetLink also interfaces with dSPACE’s VEOS simulation platform and dSPACE’s SYNECT data management software for a more powerful development environment.
TargetLink is a production code generator that generates highly efficient C-code directly from Simulink®/Stateflow® models. It supports efficient, modular development for model-based design, and is certified according to ISO 26262 and IEC 61508. TargetLink’s outstanding qualities are its automotive focus, high reliability, process integratability, and support of standards such as AUTOSAR, ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2), MISRA and OSEK.
For component-based software development, TargetLink 3.4 has a new interface concept that enables users to reuse code and models in different projects without any modifications. TargetLink supports the latest AUTOSAR versions 4.0.3 and 3.2.2, and automatically takes care of most AUTOSAR details for users by generating an updateable AUTOSAR frame model.
For convenient management of the large data volumes involved in model-based development, TargetLink 3.4 includes a powerful diff & merge functionality in the Data Dictionary, as well as a connection to the SYNECT data management and collaboration software. Thus, signals and parameters can be specified with the aid of SYNECT’s built-in version control and multi-user support features, and synchronized with the TargetLink Data Dictionary.
For integration with dSPACE’s offline simulator VEOS, TargetLink 3.4 generates virtual ECUs that can be executed directly on VEOS for early testing and verification with ControlDesk Next Generation. Extended modeling features, combined with customer-specific code and considerable code efficiency enhancements, round off this new TargetLink release.
