dSPACE offers new version of production code generator
dSPACE's Version 4.3 of TargetLink is an industry-proven production code generator, according to the company. In addition to improvements that let it work more efficiently, the new version gives users a 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 is intended to simplify the work of function and software developers.
The graphical user interface 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, said the company.
For modular development, the production code generator 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.
Another update is the support for the AUTOSAR standard 4.3 as well as additional mechanisms to partition data and code into individual memory segments. This is 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 is intended to reduce the work involved in documenting potential deviations from the rules.
