Technology is our passion, Quality is what we stand for
Technology and quality is in our DNA. 3T invests a lot in building up knowledge of new technologies and manufacturing. We do this by performing technology research projects internally. This enables us to excel in a number of technologies and guarantee the quality of your product.
One of our core compentences is Model-Based Design.
Model-Based Design is a process for fast and cost-effective development of dynamic systems. These are typically controls systems, systems with signal processing and communication systems. In Model-Based Design the system model is is the center of the development process, from the development of requirements, to the design, implementation and validation of the system. The model becomes an executable specification that you continually refine throughout the development process. After model development, simulation shows whether the model works correctly.
When software and hardware implementation requirements are included with the model, such as fixed-point and timing behavior, you can generate code for the target hardware and you can test hardware-in-the-loop, saving time and avoiding manually coded errors.
Model-Based Design several advantages:
The model is the specification
Impact of requirements are clear very early
Change requests can be implemented quickly
Design errors are visible in an early stage
Continuous verification in a model-based simulation including hardware-in-the-loop
No programming errors due to code generation
Hardware choices can be delayed
Higher quality, flexibility and shorter time-to-market
MathWorks tooling: MATLAB en SimuLink
For Model-Based Design we use the toolchain of MathWorks: MATLAB and Simulink. We have experience in the use of Model-Based Design with code generation voor FPGAs and microcontrollers. We also have enabled our MINT and PEPPER for Model-Based Design using MATLAB and SimuLink.
