Simulink PLC Coder extends Model-Based Design for the industrial automation segment by helping create source code in structured text (IEC 61131-3 ST) using Simulink models that can be easily integrated in B&R Automation Studio.

"Model-Based Design helps machine manufacturing companies to efficiently leverage valuable development resources while managing costs and speeding time-to-market. B&R has proven that it is an innovative solution provider by offering a universal interface to integrate code generated by Real-Time Workshop and Simulink PLC Coder in the Automation Studio development environment." states Tom Erkkinen, embedded applications manager, MathWorks.

The perfect complement to B&R Automation Studio Target for Simulink
Simulink PLC Coder perfectly complements the automatic code generation solution that has been offered by B&R for two years now - Automation Studio Target for Simulink. B&R provides users the option to generate ANSI-C or structured text code alternatively and automatically integrate it into the automation project.

Efficient development through simulation and Model-Based Design
Model-Based Design, together with automatic code generation allows development processes to be significantly shortened, creating shorter and more cost efficient design workflows. Design errors are detected early during simulation, and algorithms that have been tested in models can be transferred to the industrial controller at the push of a button. However, integration of the respective tool is always a decisive factor. Close cooperation between B&R and MathWorks will ensure continuity in this area in the future.
