Component Creation

Create AUTOSAR software component from model or ARXML

To begin working on an AUTOSAR software component, create a Simulink® representation of the component. Either create an AUTOSAR software component for an existing Simulink model or import an AUTOSAR software component or composition from AUTOSAR XML (ARXML) files into a new Simulink model. To get started, see Create AUTOSAR Software Component in Simulink or Import AUTOSAR Software Component.
