MathWorks Introduces Support Packages to Generate Code Optimized for Arm Cortex-M Processors from MATLAB and Simulink

Optimized Code Can Now Be Built and Tested Using Simulink and Embedded Coder

NATICK, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 29, 2013MathWorks today announced  SimulinkDSP System Toolbox and  Embedded Coder support packages to generate code optimized for ARM® Cortex®-M series processors. Now available with  Release 2013b, the MATLAB and Simulink support packages offer three levels of integration support:

  • Simulink, DSP System Toolbox and Embedded Coder can generate code for ARM’s CMSIS DSP library to produce optimized performance of DSP filters (for any ARM Cortex-M processor)
  • Simulink and Embedded Coder can build and test the optimized code using Processor-in-the-Loop (PIL) testing based on GCC and the QEMU host emulator (for ARM Cortex-M3 processors)
  • Simulink and Embedded Coder can generate code for device drivers and enables hardware I/O for STMicroelectronics STM32F4 Discovery Board (for ARM Cortex-M4 processors)

“MathWorks  Model-Based Design tools are helping developers create the next generation of energy efficient and intelligent ARM-based technology,” said Richard York, director, Embedded Processor Products, ARM. “These new tools and support packages are optimized to accelerate the entire design and development process. This encompasses modelling and simulation, optimized code generation using the ARM Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS), right through to mass production.”

“Engineers are often faced with the challenge of using high-level tools for fast design and then manually re-writing algorithms into processor-optimized code,” said Paul Barnard, design automation marketing director, MathWorks. “By enabling MATLAB and Simulink to generate code optimized for ARM these teams can focus on exploring and iterating on design, accelerating prototyping and deployment in embedded systems used in mass production.”

The ARM optimized code offers up to a 10X execution performance improvement over ANSI/ISO C and supports MATLAB code, Simulink blocks, and DSP System Toolbox filters. ARM provides an integration that automates build and execution of the ARM optimized code, generated from Simulink, for the ARM MDK package.

Support Packages for Simulink, DSP System Toolbox and Embedded Coder are available immediately.
