Code Generator

dSPACE, Wixom, MI, offers Version 4.4 of TargetLink code generator software that features controller modeling with MATLAB® code from MathWorks. It describes algorithms and behavior directly with MATLAB code in a Simulink model. The module for MATLAB Code can be used to map the modeling process. Production code generated with TargetLink can be validated and tested on a dSPACE real-time system so users can immediately verify how the developed code works in a real-world environment.
