MathWorks and Texas Instruments Incorporated announced their continued collaboration to provide customers extended support for design of cost-sensitive, energy-efficient applications.
Model-Based Design is now able to support the full development chain - from algorithm development to production code generation. The Piccolo MCU family offers a broad range of performance, flash, analog integration, and control-oriented peripheral options to meet the varying demands of cost-sensitive, real-time control applications.
Design engineers can now execute their MATLAB and Simulink algorithm code across all F2802x/F2803x Piccolo devices for rapid prototyping and production deployment of embedded systems. Model-Based Design with production code generation creates a direct connection between the development environment and implementation platform, helping engineers to identify and fix design problems at the system level and easily generate efficient C2000-specific code.
Andrew Clay, Managing Director Australia at MathWorks explained that "creating energy efficient designs is quickly becoming the single most important part of the embedded development landscape”. “Model-Based Design”, he said, “ helps embedded developers reach the market faster with innovative products that harness the low-cost, high performance and control-oriented peripherals of Piccolo MCUs".
“Texas Instruments and MathWorks share a commitment to provide developers with the tools and support that assist them in simplifying design of innovative end products that are reliable, energy efficient and cost effective," said Sangmin Chon, C2000 worldwide marketing director, TI. The Target Support Package is available immediately.
