Graphical Modeling and Programming Tools
- dSPACE TargetLink
TargetLink is a software system that generates production code (C code) straight from the MATLAB/Simulink/Stateflow graphical development environment. Code generation options range from plain ANSI C code to optimized fixed- or floating-point code for NXP S12 and S12X processors. Versatile code configuration options ensure that the production code copes with processor constraints. Built-in simulation simplifies testing with on-target processor in the loop simulation to test code generation against standard model simulation. (more)
- SimuQuest QuantiPhi
QuantiPhi is a comprehensive Simulink blockset that supports micro configuration, and automatic generation of software drivers from a Simulink model. The user friendly interface is unique in the industry, providing a single simple and intuitive interface for complete micro configuration. QuantiPhi supports the NXP S12 and S12X. (more)
- The MathWorks™ - Real-Time Workshop Embedded Coder and Simulink
The Real-Time Workshop® Embedded Coder™ product generates C code from Simulink® and Stateflow® models that has the clarity and efficiency of professional handwritten code. The Embedded Coder can be used to generate device driver code for the NXP S12X processor and integrate it into a model. You can also run processor-in-the-loop (PIL) testing to verify the behavior of my model running as code on the embedded processor. Example demo kit with models available from MathWorks (more).
