Speeds Development Time of Low-Cost, Energy Efficient Applications with Model-Based Design.
NATICK, Mass. - MathWorks and Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today announced continued collaboration to provide customers extended support for design of cost-sensitive, energy-efficient applications. Engineers using TI’s TMS320C2000™ Piccolo real-time control microcontrollers (MCUs) can now adopt Model-Based Design to support the full development chain – from algorithm development to production code generation. Adding support for the low-cost, high-performance Piccolo MCU family, the Target Support Package product from MathWorks now offers rapid turnkey implementation, early verification and shorter time-to-market for digital motor control, digital power, lighting, renewable energy and other applications requiring real-time control. For more information about Piccolo, go to www.ti.com/mw-piccolo-pr-lp, and for more information on MathWorks’ Model-Based Design tool, go to www.mathworks.com/C2000.
The 32-bit 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.
“Creating energy efficient designs is quickly becoming the single most important part of the embedded development landscape. Model-Based Design helps embedded developers reach the market faster with innovative products that harness the low-cost, high performance and control-oriented peripherals of Piccolo MCUs,” said Ken Karnofsky, MathWorks senior strategist for signal processing applications.
“TI and MathWorks share a common commitment to provide developers with the tools and support they need to simplify design of innovative end products that are reliable, energy efficient and cost effective,” said Sangmin Chon, C2000 worldwide marketing director, TI. “The integration of our tools within Model-Based Design further demonstrates that commitment and allows more customers to speed development from initial rapid prototyping all the way to production.”
