The MathWorks and Mentor Graphics developed an integrated workflow for DO-254 compliance using Model-Based Design. The approach combines tools from The MathWorks and Mentor Graphics to support Model-Based Design throughout all stages of the development process, including requirements definition and management, conceptual and detailed design, implementation, and testing. With the integrated workflow, aerospace engineers can verify designs earlier, implement in HDL faster, gain greater reuse of design and verification effort, and more easily manage requirements and test cases throughout the entire development process.
Simulink PLC Coder, from The MathWorks, is a tool that generates IEC 61131 structured text for programmable logic controller (PLC) and programmable automation controller (PAC) devices. With Simulink PLC Coder, engineers can automatically generate code for industrial control systems, including closed-loop and supervisory control applications. Simulink PLC Coder enables Model-Based Design for manufacturing and power generation equipment controlled by PLCs and PACs. Simulink PLC Coder is available now. U.S. list prices start at $10,000.
Altium and The MathWorks are sponsoring a webcast. The online seminar is titled, High-level Software for Embedded-system Design.
