Production code generator gets easier to use

February 22, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Tool manufacturer dSpace has introduced a new version of its Production code generator Targetlink. The new version 4.3 is characterized by more user-friendliness and optimized workflows for modular developments. It also makes it easier for the user to comply with MISRA requirements.

TargetLink's graphical user interface now includes a completely redesigned Property Manager, which gives production code developers a better overview of their models, block and object properties. New features include comprehensive filter options, automatic validation and highlighting of errors. The result is a significant simplification of working with large models and a noticeable improvement in user comfort.

In modular development, TargetLink 4.3 now offers optimized workflows for creating, integrating, and reusing individual components. A flexible organization of the generated artifacts as well as the central administration of all components involved in the project enable a comfortable description of the overall project and thus considerably simplify the collaboration in distributed teams.

Another new feature of TargetLink 4.3 is the support of the Autosar standard 4.3 and other powerful mechanisms for partitioning data and code into individual memory segments. This is particularly helpful for safety-critical projects, as well as the fact that TargetLink can now adhere to all the MISRA-C: 2012 auto-code rules of the "mandatory" and "required" categories. This considerably reduces the time and effort involved in documenting possible deviations from the standard.
