MathWorks Simulink PLC Coder Certified by TUV SUD
The TÜV SÜD certification is based on an audit of the software development, quality engineering, and customer bug reporting processes used by MathWorks in the development of Simulink PLC Coder. The certification requires that engineers using Simulink PLC Coder follow a verification and validation workflow that aids detection and prevention of potential errors in both generated structured text and third-party integrated development environment (IDE) that compiles the structured text. By including the full implementation tool chain, this workflow is able to support a wide variety of industrial controllers and is not locked into a particular PLC or PAC device. The workflow is documented and available with the MathWorks IEC Certification Kit, which also includes the TÜV SÜD certificate and certification report.
“Simulink PLC Coder brings greater development efficiencies and now reduces certification costs for IEC 61508 and IEC 61151 projects,” said Tom Erkkinen, embedded application manager at MathWorks. “This certification adds to our growing list of products that can be certified or qualified to popular industry standards, all of which enable engineers to leverage the benefits of Model-Based Design for their high-integrity applications.”
MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software. MATLAB, the language of technical computing, is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation. Simulink is a graphical environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multidomain dynamic and embedded systems. Engineers and scientists worldwide rely on these product families to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development in automotive, aerospace, electronics, financial services, biotech-pharmaceutical, and other industries. MathWorks products are also fundamental teaching and research tools in the world’s universities and learning institutions. Founded in 1984, MathWorks employs more than 2200 people in 15 countries, with headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, USA.
