Production code generator software supports adaptive AutoSAR
Based on user feedback, dSpace has introduced the latest version of its TargetLink production production code generator. TargetLink 5.0 now supports the Adaptive AutoSAR standard.
The scope of Adaptive AutoSAR support in TargetLink 5.0 will be expanded in the coming months in close co-operation with users, says dSpace. It is intended for agile development processes in the automotive industry, and to ensure that precise production code required for future Adaptive AutoSAR electronic control units (ECUs) can be generated.
In TargetLink 5.0, software developers can develop Adaptive AutoSAR models and generate the code required for them. The focus of supporting the new standard is initially on the model reuse of non- and Classic AutoSAR models. This means that TargetLink users can also use existing non- or Classic AutoSAR models for adaptive AutoSAR with TargetLink 5.0 and later.
Users can model adaptive AutoSAR in the TargetLink Data Dictionary in the same way as Classic AutoSAR, advises dSpace.
Starting with the initial release of Adaptive AutoSAR, pre-releases of future TargetLink versions with Adaptive AutoSAR support are now available. Users can test and evaluate the advantages of the new functionalities at an early stage of development.
Once the preliminary versions have been iteratively extended, the functionalities for Adaptive AutoSAR support will be included in dSpace Release 2020-B in Q3/4.
Since Release 2019-A, dSpace has also provided Adaptive AutoSAR support for SystemDesk. SystemDesk allows wrapping Classic AutoSAR interfaces to Adaptive AutoSAR interfaces. This makes it possible to reuse Classic AutoSAR software components created with TargetLink in an Adaptive AutoSAR ECU.
In addition, virtual Adaptive AutoSAR ECUs can be tested quickly and easily in combination with SystemDesk and VEOS, the PC-based dSpace simulation platform. This allows for the early validation of new Adaptive AutoSAR components created with TargetLink code or hand-code.
Since its launch more than 20 years ago, TargetLink has been used in numerous production projects all over the world. TargetLink generates highly efficient C code directly from Simulink/Stateflow models. It supports efficient, modular development and is ISO 26262-, ISO 25119-, and IEC 61508-certified.
TargetLink supports AutoSAR, Adaptive AutoSAR, ASAM MCD-2 MC (ASAP2), functional mock-up interface (FMI) and Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) standards.
dSpace develops and distributes integrated hardware and software tools for developing and testing ECUs in many areas of the automotive industry, from electromobility to vehicle networking to autonomous driving. dSpace systems are also used in aerospace and other industries.
The company is headquartered in Paderborn, Germany, has three project centres in Germany and serves customers through regional dSpace companies in the USA, the UK, France, Japan, China, and Croatia.
