  • Simulink® blockset providing ECU read and write access from dSPACE real-time platforms via different kinds of ECU interfaces such as CCP, XCP, DPMEM PODs or on-chip debug ports. The blockset is especially designed for the dialog-based configuration of bypass applications. It allows ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2) files to be imported and ECU variables to be selected via a convenient browser. It handles conversion formulas and the selection of bypass hooks automatically. In addition, the RTI Bypass Blockset supports on-target (internal) bypassing, allowing the bypass model to be compiled and downloaded directly into the free flash memory and RAM of the target ECU. For this, model parameters and signals are automatically added to the ECU’s ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2) file.

  • SystemDesk

    Top
  • System and software architecture development

  • SystemDesk supports the development of software architectures and distributed automotive electrics/electronics (E/E) systems. Such systems can be modeled according to the AUTOSAR standard. Existing communication matrix files can be imported in SystemDesk to specify network communication. When AUTOSAR software components are modeled or imported in SystemDesk, available ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2) models can be imported as well. During generation of the AUTOSAR run-time environment (RTE) and virtual ECUs (V-ECUs), ASAP2 file generation is also performed for variables that are tagged for calibration and measurement according to the AUTOSAR concept. When V-ECUs are built, instances of the XCP service (XCP on Ethernet – TCP/IP) are implemented in the V-ECU code. Thus, the V-ECUs and variables described in the ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2) files can be accessed during simulation.

  • TargetLink

    Top
  • Production code generation (for ECU development)

  • TargetLink is a software system that generates production code (C code) straight from the MATLAB®/Simulink®/Stateflow® graphical development environment. The C code generation options range from plain ANSI C code to optimized fixed- or floating-point code for AUTOSAR platforms. Versatile code configuration options ensure that the production code copes with processor constraints. Converting graphical models directly into production code ensures perfect consistency between model and code at all times. Since the same model will always result in the same proven code, TargetLink’s code generation is deterministic and thus guarantees the highest software quality. Every step can be tested against the specification via the built-in simulation features.
