VisSim/Embedded Control Developer
VisSim/Embedded Control Developer is model based development software for TI DSP and microprocessors. VisSim/ECD generates highly efficient code from intuitive block diagrams. VisSim's model based paradigm greatly speeds embedded systems development. The VisSim/ECD fixed point block set automatic converts floating point constants and operations to in-line integer operations. The peripheral block set auto generates code for on-chip peripherals. Generated code from VisSim comes within 5% of hand code speed and RAM usage.
Supported Targets include: MSP430, TMS320C2000, and TMS320C6000.
• Intuitive interface → system modeling within minutes
• Production-grade C code generator → automatically scales fixed-point operations
• Easy drop down menus → guide efficient, interrupt-driven code for all on-chip peripherals
• Simulation feature → verify, debug and tune algorithms while viewing results in graphical plots

VisSim/Serial lets you read and write standard RS232 serial bytes from the VisSim block diagram via Serial read/write blocks. VisSim/Serial lets you configure serial port settings including baud rate, parity and stop bits. You can also choose whether you want to read single characters or complete strings. You can use Serial blocks for remote sensing, data exchange or remote control. You can easily log data, plot, strip-chart or run a virtual plant or controller for model based development.
• Low cost and reliable - uses existing serial ports on PC
• Fully configurable for data rate, stop bits, parity, data type, and more
VisSim/CAN connects the low-cost PCAN USB-CAN device (purchased separately) to the VisSim block diagram via receive/transmit blocks. VisSim/CAN gives you a low cost Controller Area Network (CAN) development interface. You can easily log data, plot, strip-chart or run a virtual plant or controller for model based development. Configuration is done completely through blocks and dialogs.
• Low cost, reliable, convenient – powered entirely by the USB connection
• Fully configurable, user selectable data types
