MotoHawk Control Solutions
MotoHawk® is a controls system application development tool that allows the user to create Simulink® diagrams that run on the MotoHawk Control Solutions' rugged, automotive-quality embedded control modules. The product summary can be downloaded here: MotoTron Product Guide.
MotoHawk is intended for control feature development, vehicle calibration, and fleet testing. MotoHawk is built on Woodward's ControlCore® production software framework and supports a variety of applications using both single controller and distributed by-wire implementations. MotoHawk is a powerful development and prototyping system for Simulink/Stateflow users. Control models prototyped with MotoHawk move seamlessly from development into production.
MotoHawk follows the work flow and benefits of Model-Based design using the Mathworks tool chain. For an introduction to model-based design and Simulink, go to Model-Based Design Using Simulink.

MotoHawk Application Libraries
Application libraries or templates are provided to assist in creating proper architecture and components in your models.
These libraries templates are intended to help a user get the project started and save time, but are not intended to be the final application. New Eagle does offer consulting or applications assistance in extending the templates for your project.
We have the following types of controllers:
The controllers range in pin count, input, output, memory, and processor configuration.
Most modules are available in ‘F’ (Flash) or ‘C’ (Calibratible) versions. Flash modules are typically used for production purposes. Calibratible modules are typically for prototyping/development purposes and can be calibrated in real time using MotoTune or another calibration tool.
MotoTune is a Calibration/Display tool, part of MotoHawk Control Solutions, that allows flashing of modules, creations of calibrations, development of displays, and communication of two controllers at once. MotoTune / MotoServerRuntime 188.8.131.52 have been released! This release supports Windows XP (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit). Please note that this new support for the 64-bit versions of Windows still requires using the MATLAB 32-bit versions at this time. Support for MATLAB 64-bit versions is currently planned for MotoHawk 2010b, later this year.
This page resolves commonly faced issues while using MotoTune Software from installation to application.
XCP Calibration Tools
MotoHawk users have the other of calibration tool options including Vector CANape, ATI Vision, and ETAS Inca using the CCP blockset.
As a product increases in series production, the MotoFlash® production programming system provides a complete solution for your medium to high volume Electronic Control Unit (ECU) programming requirements.
Currently being used by Mercury Marine and other MotoHawk users.
Custom Service Tools
Other Software Tools
The MotoHawk Scanner is a useful tool when you have to work with a module with unknown programming. Instead of guessing the city ID until finding one that works, or using a boot key to reflash the module, you can just use the MotoHawk Scanner to determine which city ID the module is on, and then interact with it in MotoService or MotoTune by that city ID. When using MotoHawk Scanner make sure no other programs are using the CAN bus, for example Mototune or Kvaser Can King. If another program besides MotoHawk scanner is on the bus, the scanner might not work.
The MotoHawk Scanner is available to download here.
The 1700 replaces the original 2" round "Miniview" gauge. The purpose of this product is to allow the MotoHawk user to send messages via a block to create a custom display, without the effort and cost of C programming.
VeeCAN 320 MotoHawk Slave
The New Eagle™ VeeCAN MotoHawk display application is ideal for developing a display interface using MotoHawk software. It allows a user to create a custom color display using MotoHawk modeling blocks versus time consuming C programming. MiniView MotoHawk users will appreciate the ease of creating a display that reads CAN messages from the MotoHawk controller.
MotoHawk users have excellent options for tools to assist in the use of the product including hand tools, break-out boxes, desktop simulators, and more.
Breakout Box Assembly
ECU breakout boxes are rugged harness inserts designed to assist troubleshooting and failure mode testing activities and are a highly recommended part of every developer's toolkit.
We have breakout boxes for all MotoHawk controller families.
New Eagle offers an expansion kit for the Breakout Box Assemblies. It includes 28 total pieces, including banana plugs, alligator clips, coaxial and breakout box connectors.
Includes tools that are designed to strip, cut, crimp, and remove wire.
MotoHawk Desktop I/O Simulator
The MotoHawk Desktop I/O Simulator is a powerful development tool, designed to assist in programming the MotoHawk ECM, conveniently on your desktop.
ECM, GCM, HCM, Smartcraft 10-pin through 128-pin connector kits are available.
Any project that involves a MotoHawk controller will also involve a wire harness. The harness is nothing more than that spaghetti of wires running from the controller out to the vehicle components.
