The update will ease the development of systems with multirate control (multiple control periods), typically found in engine and body control systems.
Supporting a multirate control model in the development environment makes it possible to evaluate the execution performance in simulation and for that performance to be estimated from the beginning of development and fed back into the model itself. The "Embedded Target for RH850Multicore" update will be deployed this autumn.
The update will also provide support for the Simulink Scheduler Block, which conforms to the type (alpha) control model from the JMAAB Control Modeling Guidelines. This model provides a scheduler layer in the software upper layer to make it possible to follow the multirate single-task method without an OS, express the core specifications and synchronisation in the Simulink model, and automatically generate multicore code for the RH850 to implement deterministic operations.
The updated will support Renesas’ RH850/P1H-C MCU that includes two cores by the autumn, and also provide support for the planned RH850/E2x Series of MCUs, which include up to six cores. The development environment will also be deployed to the entire Renesas autonomy Platform, including the "R-Car" Family of SoCs.
