Traditional debugging approaches (Stop Mode) require that programmers completely halt their system which stops all threads and prevents interrupts from being handled, which makes debugging extremely difficult if the system/application has real-time constraints. Real-time mode debug support provides a better gauge of real-world system behavior by enabling programmers to halt and examine the application while allowing user specified time critical interrupts to be handled.
Embedded Coder® from MathWorks® generates C code from MATLAB® and Simulink® models optimized for Texas Instruments performance microcontrollers using Code Composer Studio IDE. Embedded Coder provides engineers using Model-Based Design with fine grain control of software interfaces, execution performance optimizations, and RAM/ROM memory consumption options.
In PIL mode, control algorithms are executed on the real embedded hardware. However, instead of reading the actual sensors of the power converter, values calculated by the simulation tool are used as inputs to the embedded algorithm. Similarly, outputs of the control algorithms executing on the processor are being fed back into the simulation to drive the virtual environment.
SimCoder with F2803x or F2833x target modules from Powersim translates the control circuit from a PSIM® simulation schematic into C code compatible with Texas Instruments C2000 F2803x or F2833x microcontrollers. The generated code can be loaded and compiled with Code Composer Studio IDE and supports on-chip functions: IQMath, PWM, ADC, SCI & SPI communications, and general digital I/O. The PSIM DSP oscilloscope utility allows for real-time debug of internal processor variables and computations, it also allows the user to update and change variable values without using the Code Composer Studio IDE watch window. Powersim has translated TI’s digital motor control library into graphical control blocks that can be used in conjunction with PSIM’s extensive digital control library to simulate the control of PSIM power and motor components.Learn more about PSIM support on C2000 processors and companion simulation schematics for TI development kits
