ARM Cortex A Support from Embedded Coder

Generate code optimized for Cortex A processors.

Altium Support from Embedded Coder

MATLAB Coder™, Simulink Coder™, and Embedded Coder® generate ANSI/ISO C/C++ code that can be compiled and executed on ARM® Cortex® A processors. Embedded Coder lets you easily configure the code generated from MATLAB® and Simulink® algorithms to control software interfaces, optimize execution performance, and minimize memory consumption.

ARM Cortex-A processors compatible with Embedded Coder generated code include:

Cortex – A72
Cortex – A57
Cortex – A53
Cortex – A17
Cortex – A15
Cortex – A9
Cortex – A8
Cortex – A7
Cortex – A5

Embedded Coder provides additional support for ARM Cortex-A processors by generating processor-optimized code using Ne10 project libraries (Ne10) with the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) compiler.

You can also use Embedded Coder to create your own ARM-specific customizations for additional processors or compilers using published APIs and reference examples. For example, you can generate processor-specific (non- ANSI) optimized code and perform processor-in-the-loop (PIL) testing with execution profiling.

Embedded Coder hardware support packages offer built-in support for specific hardware, schedulers, and compilers. MathWorks Consulting Services is available to help with extensions to other environments.
