Increased Safety and Performance Through Automatic Code Generation

April 20, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Conventional solutions for Automatic Code Generation in MATLAB® and Simulink® are based solely on MathWorks' Real-Time Workshop®. B&R also offers the possibility of generating even more efficient and easier to read source code based on the Real-Time Workshop® Embedded Coder™. Source code generated in this manner requires less of the available processing power and memory, creating the perfect conditions for efficient high-performance algorithms on the target system.

Ideal readability ensures maximum safety:
Furthermore, the automatically generated source code is clearly structured and automatically documented. This makes it ideal for use in critical applications with validation or certification requirements. "Real-Time Workshop® Embedded Coder™ has TÜV Süd certification and meets the IEC guidelines relevant to model-based design," states Tom Erkkinen, Embedded Applications Manager at MathWorks.

Through their support of all Automatic Code Generation options in Automation Studio Target for Simulink®, B&R provides users maximum flexibility when choosing their development tools.
