With a performance boost in Version 3.0 of SystemDesk, dSPACE (Wixom, MI) has optimized its AUTOSAR modeling and simulation environment for use in production projects. SystemDesk's enhanced performance makes it ideal for large-scale projects. Its simplified user handling and reworked modeling workflow support users working on complex AUTOSAR developments.
The interaction between SystemDesk and TargetLink has been strengthened. The two tools can now exchange bundles of AUTOSAR files belonging to a software component, including supplementary documentation. This leads to greater transparency, and AUTOSAR round trips can be made with a minimum of user actions.
In addition to supporting software-in-the-loop simulation, SystemDesk 3.0 lets developers execute AUTOSAR applications as virtual electronic control units (ECUs) on an evaluation board. This means that ECU code can be simulated on the target processor at a very early stage.
