QGen 2.1 Release!

by Emma Adby

Embedded World will see the latest release of QGen, the qualifiable and customisable code generator for Simulink® and Stateflow® models!

QGen is a practical tool that uses a model based system engineering format, designed for use in safety-critical control systems. The model based concept allows the user to go back and alter the pre-existing building blocks instead of having to hand edit code.

The model is supported by MISRA C, SPARK, Simulink® and Stateflow®, with the update providing support for the 2015a/b and .slx formats. QGen can be used inside or outside the Simulink® environment, within which a large subset of blocks are supported.

QGen 2.1 supports several more Simulink® blocks, such as Enumerated Constant and provides an optimized implementation of Switch Blocks. In addition, the update supports commented out/through blocks and MATLAB versions 2008b through to 2015b.

QGen tool qualification material includes: DO-178C, EN 50128, and ISO-26262 TCL3 standards. Also, there is validation against Simulink® simulation.

For a more detailed explanation of QGen, why not check out Tucker Taft’s presentation from the 2015 AdaCore Tech Days?
