Engineering teams use Model-Based Design with MATLAB® and Simulink® to verify and validate embedded systems. Teams author requirements directly in their models and can then use those models to generate production code for certification.

  • Author requirements in your model, and verify and trace them to the design, tests, and code.
  • Prove that your design meets requirements, and automatically generate tests.
  • Check compliance of models and code using static analysis and formal methods.
  • Find bugs, security vulnerabilities, and prove the absence of critical run-time errors.
  • Produce reports and artifacts, and certify to standards (such as DO-178 and ISO 26262).

MATLAB and Simulink Products for Verification, Validation, and Test

  • Simulink Requirements: Author, manage, and trace requirements to models, generated code, and test cases
  • Simulink Check: Verify compliance of design model with style guidelines, modeling standards, and industry certification standards
  • Simulink Test: Develop, manage, and execute simulation-based tests (including testing for software-in-the-loop, processor-in-the-loop, and hardware-in-the-loop)
  • Simulink Coverage: Measure test completeness with models and generate code coverage metrics
  • Simulink Design Verifier: Use formal verification to find hidden design errors, prove your design meets requirements, and automatically generate test inputs
  • Polyspace Bug Finder: Check compliance to standards such as MISRA, and find security vulnerabilities and software bugs in source code
  • Polyspace Code Prover: Prove that the source code is free of critical run-time errors
