April 25, 2012 -- MathWorks, Inc. today announced that Simulink code-generation targets have been built into Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.'s new Motor Control Development Toolbox through Embedded Coder.The toolbox, consisting of Simulink motor-control blocks and target-ready code-generation support, lets automotive and industrial controls engineers design motor-control systems using Freescale microprocessors in IEC 61508 (SIL3) and ISO 26262 (ASIL-D) compliant systems.
With the Motor Control Development Toolbox, engineers can design motor algorithms as well as configure and generate all software needed to execute the algorithms on any Freescale MPC5643L or PXS20 hardware platform. The toolbox includes a motor control library developed by Freescale's Motor Control Center of Excellence. With this library, engineers can model their designs using blocks optimized for fast execution on Freescale MCUs and run bit-accurate simulations of those designs. The toolbox offers optimized code generation and support for model-in-the-loop (MIL), software-in-the-loop (SIL) and processor-in-the-loop (PIL) testing through Embedded Coder from MathWorks.
The Motor Control Development Toolbox supports the MPC564xL, MPC567xK and PXS30 and PXS20 MCU families.
Block libraries in the Toolbox provide base math functions including trigonometry, PI controllers, FIR and IIR filters, and motor-control operations including Park and Clarke transforms. Peripheral block support includes ADC and PWM, as well as SPI and CAN buses.
The generated C source code can be automatically built with Freescale CodeWarrior IDE, Wind River Diab, Green Hills Software MULTI, and other compilers. For examining software on target hardware, the toolbox provides FreeMASTER, which enables parameter tuning, real-time monitoring, and data logging.
