Updated model-based development environment eases software development burdens
Renesas Electronics has an update to its “Embedded Target for RH850Multicore” model-based development environment for multicore MCUs for automotive control applications. The update continues development of systems with multirate control (multiple control periods), which is now prevalent in systems such as engine and body control systems. This model-based development environment has grown more practical even in software development scenarios for multicore MCUs, and can decrease the frequently complex software development burdens particularly in control system development of self-driving cars.
"Model-based development is becoming increasingly common, and Renesas has now completed an environment that covers from control design through automatic code generation. At the same time, since multicore software is complex, it was difficult to handle such software in earlier model-based development environments,” said Hiroyuki Kondo, vice president of Shared R&D Division 1, Automotive Solution Business Unit, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “Leveraging our extensive expertise in automotive control use cases, we were able to start working on practical application of this technology early on, and thus succeeded in creating this update. I am confident that our model-based development environment will bring dramatically improved efficiency in software development for multicore microcontrollers."
