MTest Classic 2.4
Model Engineering Solutions has released MTest Classic 2.4: the latest version of the company's model test manager for Simulink and Targetlink.
This latest version includes some new features: Targetlink sub-modules can now be automatically used for module testing; a new test interface uses defaults and constants to simplify test data definition; and interface extraction has been introduced for Classification Tree Editor (CTE) integration.
MTest Classic, which is a component of model-based development, provides support throughout the entire model testing process, from initial test design to test implementation, execution, evaluation and final documentation.
A graphical user interface and multiple test data definition methods, as well as features such as regression and back-to-back testing, give users a complete solution.
Automatic test report generation means that no extra hours are spent on report collation and that mandatory specifications in safety-critical development are fulfilled.
MTest Classic helps developers comply with industry-wide standards, reducing errors and providing the requisite documentation automatically.
Industry is traditionally slow to adopt any new Microsoft operating system. Many industrial Windows users will have no need for the many new features on offer and will be cautious of potential bugs or security flaws. It is rarely worth considering switching to a new operating system unless you are developing a new product. For those who are making the switch, this white paper from Amplicon describes the key benefits of using Windows 7.
Drivven, a provider of automotive control and data acquisition technology, has used CompactRIO hardware and Labview software from National Instruments to prototype an engine control system for a 2004 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycle.
As processors become more complex, ensuring proper operation becomes more involved and more is required from supervisory circuits. In this application note, Maxim Integrated Products claims that its supervisor ICs have kept pace with the development of increasingly complex products, providing monitoring and control for multi-voltage systems.
Congatec’s enhanced third-generation Intel Core processor modules — available in three versions — are claimed to provide maximum graphics and processing power for both Type 2 and Type 6 pin-out.
Parasoft Embedded software products have helped Bovie Medical, a manufacturer of electrosurgical products, to cut costs and speed up operations. The software has also enabled the company to develop a controllable V&V process.
