Unique integration with dSPACE TargetLink

Testing is often one of the most time-consuming tasks in model-based development projects. Even before the first test case is created, a lot of time is typically spent creating test harnesses on model and code level, as well as providing information about scaling and ranges to the test tool. Thanks to the close integration between dSPACE TargetLink and BTC EmbeddedPlatform, this effort can be dramatically reduced, giving TargetLink users more time to focus on their test tasks.

Automatic Analysis of the Test Architecture on Model and Code Level

BTC EmbeddedPlatform analyses all TargetLink model details and the automatically generated production code. All information about subsystems, interfaces, data-types, scaling and ranges as well as the mapping between model and code artifacts is extracted fully automatically. This even includes the hierarchical structure of models, allowing smaller sub-functions to be tested automatically on model and code level without the need for manual changes in the model. In addition to inputs and outputs, BTC EmbeddedPlatform detects internal calibrations parameters and display variables, making them accessible on all simulation levels.

Besides Model-in-the-loop (MIL) and Software-in-the-loop (SIL), BTC EmbeddedPlatform also supports TargetLink Processor-in-the-loop (PIL) simulations, which allow to run the generated code on the target processor. If AUTOSAR is used, BTC EmbeddedPlatform also provides dedicated support for special AUTOSAR communication mechanisms like Client/Server or RTE-Status.

One Platform - Combining Many Use Cases

A Partnership which is much more than just a logo

We understand valuable partnerships are not just created when two companies sign a contract... partnerships create value for customers if teams from both companies interact with each other on a regular and trustful basis. This is exactly what has been happening at dSPACE and BTC since 2008.

We closely work together in areas like marketing and sales, development, product management, engineering and support. This collaboration does not only give TargetLink users the best possible toolchain integration, it also simplifies dramatically the handling of support cases, trainings or engineering projects.

BTC Embedded Systems AG is a dSPACE Strategic Partner for dSPACE TargetLink with BTC EmbeddedTester, BTC EmbeddedTester BASE, BTC EmbeddedSpecifier, and BTC EmbeddedValidator.
