Model-based design finally gets an embedded tool chain
February 13, 2014 // Nick Flaherty
Two European companies have joined forces to provide the first full tool chain for high level model-based design in embedded systems.
Both the market for embedded solutions and the market for model based software and system development are growing, but there is a lack of tools for testing and debugging software directly from the model with specific hardware. The embedded market finally is ready. It took some years to bring modeling, code generation and debugging tools together," said Erol Simsek, CEO of iSYSTEM.
The tool chain combines the enar uml debugger, the first graphical UML debugger integrated in Enterprise Architect, with winIDEA, an integrated development environment for embedded software development and testing. LieberLiebers UML debugger is based on enar uml2code, a code generator for embedded systems. The code generated by a customer selected compiler may be transferred directly to the hardware. Finally enar uml debugger is connected to the target system through iSYSTEMs infrastructure, allowing graphical testing of code and debugging of the model with the visualization module of the UML debugger. Both code generator and UML debugger from LieberLieber Software support class and activity models as well as state machines. iSYSTEMs software and hardware tools (winIDEA and blue box) are available for more than 50 different CPU architectures, 3500 microcontrollers and 150 compilers.All news
