Natick, MA— The MathWorks and Green Hills Software announced Embedded IDE Link MU, a new product from The MathWorks for model-based design that automatically deploys code generated from Simulink models into Green Hills’ MULTI integrated development environment (IDE). The software enables seamless execution on a wide range of embedded microprocessors, including the Freescale Power Architecture (formerly called PowerPC).
With Embedded IDE Link MU, processor-in-the-loop (PIL) simulation tests can be conducted using a Simulink model as the test harness to quickly identify inconsistencies between algorithm behavior on the target processor and its original model simulation. In addition, The Mathworks’ Matlab can be utilized to interactively graph and analyze results while testing and debugging code within MULTI, regardless of whether the code is hand-written or generated from a Simulink model.
Embedded IDE Link MU provides an automated workflow and easy migration path between modeling and embedded development environments for prototyping, deployment, and verification of automatically generated code, bridging the functions of systems and software engineers. Furthermore, the combination of MULTI and model-based design helps decrease code and system defects that may result from hand-coding, and greatly improves overall test quality.
