EPICAS - An Environment for Parallel Implementation of Control Algorithms and Simulation
This Chapter describes how we have integrated, the control system design package, MATLAB, with the Transputer Development System (TDS), to generate an Environment for Parallel Implementation of Control Algorithms and Simulation (EPICAS). This environment offers the control engineer a number of software tools for automating the implementation of control algorithms and simulation systems on transputer-based architectures. The tools are used to map systems onto transputer architectures of different sizes and topologies, and to evaluate strategies, by displaying, on-line, task allocation, processor activity and execution time data.
