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 tool-chain, this effort can be dramatically reduced, giving the user more time to focus on his test tasks.

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.
