dSPACE TargetLink 4.3: Revised Property Manager, Optimized Workflows and More

New version of the dSPACE production code generator now available.


dSPACE now offers Version 4.3 of TargetLink, its industry-proven production code generator. In addition to improving a large number of details for working more efficiently, the new version gives users a completely revised Property Manager with improved usability, optimized workflows for modular development, and makes it easier to comply with the autocode rules of MISRA-C:2012. Additionally, TargetLink 4.3 offers comprehensive enhancements in the area of modeling algorithms, which greatly simplifies the work of function and software developers.

New Property Manager with Improved Usability

TargetLink’s graphical user interface now contains a completely revised Property Manager, which provides production code developers with an even better overview of their models and the associated block and object properties. Some of the new features include detailed filter options, automatic validation, and error indication. As a result, working with large models is significantly simpler and the usability has notably improved.

Optimized Workflows for Modular Development

For modular development, TargetLink 4.3 offers optimized workflows for creating, integrating, and reusing individual components. The flexible organization of the generated artifacts and the central management of all components in a project makes it possible to conveniently define the overall project and simplifies working in distributed teams.

Decreased Effort to Achieve MISRA Compliance, Support of AUTOSAR 4.3

Another innovation that is included in TargetLink 4.3 is the support for the AUTOSAR standard 4.3 as well as additional powerful mechanisms to partition data and code into individual memory segments. This is particularly helpful for safety-critical projects, as is the fact that TargetLink complies with all autocoding rules in the Mandatory and Required categories of MISRA C:2012. This significantly reduces the work involved in documenting potential deviations from the rules.
