dSPACE TargetLink 3.5: A Proven Tool Progresses

Wixom, Michigan, January 16, 2014:

Just released is Version 3.5 of dSPACE's production code generator TargetLink, now with support for Simulink® enum data types. Enum data types allow software developers to use descriptive names for parameters, which improves model readability and maintainability. For AUTOSAR-compliant development, the new re-lease supports AUTOSAR Version 4.1.1. ECU resources and test efforts can be saved by generating multi-instantiable software components. TargetLink 3.5 keeps installation files and project-specific extensions clearly separated. This not only provides increased process safety and transparency, but it also facilitates work in large, distributed groups. The new code generation report makes it easier to find erroneous specifications, and to inspect warnings and notifications. Further enhancements – especially to code efficiency, support of model variants, and usability – round off this TargetLink release.
