MathWorks Strengthens Simulink Support for AUTOSAR Production Programs

Offers flexible support with AUTOSAR Target Production Package.

MathWorks today announced the launch of AUTOSAR Target Production Package, a flexible support package available to automotive engineers requiring advanced AUTOSAR capabilities with Simulink and Embedded Coder. The AUTOSAR Target Production Package helps engineers use more features of the AUTOSAR standard with simplified workflows involving Model-Based Design for production code generation, reducing development time and increasing product quality.

Key features of the Embedded Coder AUTOSAR Target with the AUTOSAR Target Production Package in MathWorks Release R2011b include:

- Support for AUTOSAR 3.2 enabling the use of the latest AUTOSAR releases

- Support for Sensor Actuator Software Components so engineers can use Simulink for more of the system development

- Simplified management of AUTOSAR artifacts by exporting a single AUTOSAR ARXML file

- New interface for AUTOSAR configuration and mapping to Simulink, improving usability with large and complex models

- Enhanced SWC import, including internal behavior, UUIDs and ARXML packages providing for round-trip workflows between Simulink and AUTOSAR System Authoring Tools

- Support for Mode Switch and Operation Invoked Events including access to Sender/Receiver ports within the Server Operations

- ISO 26262 tool qualification support (requires IEC Certification Kit) enabling the use of advanced AUTOSAR capabilities for high-integrity automotive applications

The AUTOSAR Target Production Package is available immediately. For more information on MathWorks support for AUTOSAR, visit:
