Tools

MotoHawk: MATLAB Simulink Development Tool

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 (MotoHawk Controllers) . Developers work directly in the Simulink environment with MotoHawk blocks as well as native Simulink blocks and features. To learn more or access product support pages, click on the link below.

MotoTune: ECU Calibration Tool

MotoTune is a PC-based tool used to program (i.e. flash), calibrate, or create displays for MotoHawk Controllers. A spreadsheet-like user interface allows users to easily create displays or access all of the calibratable parameters contained in the control module.

Raptor-Cal is a PC-based tool that can also be used to program (i.e. flash), calibrate, or create displays for Controllers. A spreadsheet-like user interface allows users to easily create displays or access all of the calibratable parameters contained in the control module. Additionally, Raptor-Cal supports:
  • Software node-locked licensing so you can forgo the licensing dongle and free up USB ports.
  • Optional RP1210 support so you can use your existing Vehicle Interface Adapter. (Raptor-Cal supports Kvaser by default).

MotoService: ECU Field Service Tool

MotoService is a package of two software tools, MotoUpdate and MotoViewer. MotoUpdate is primarily intended to be used in the field for flashing software updates and MotoViewer is for monitoring system performance or troubleshooting issues using custom displays.

MotoFlash: Mass Production ECU Programming Tool

MotoFlash The MotoFlashâ„¢ production programming system provides a complete solution for low to high volume Electronic Control Module programming requirements. To learn more or access product support pages, click on the link below.

Raptor-CAN: CAN Analysis & Datalogging

Raptor-CAN is a comprehensive, simple tool used for communicating with and monitoring CAN systems using a Kvaser or RP1210 compatible CAN adaptor. Raptor-CAN shows in-depth analysis of the CAN traffic being sent back and forth from any system, and will record this data for future reference. Raptor-CAN also has a simulate function, sending simulated CAN signals to the connected hardware (usually using a USB to CAN system) through the allotted *.dbc file.

Raptor-Test: Automated Testing and Validation Tool

Raptor-Test facilitates testing of model-based software against requirements through simulated hardware-in-the-loop (SimHIL). Raptor-Test is designed to work with both Raptor and MotoHawk Control Modules. Raptor-Test greatly improves the effectiveness and speed of software verification and increases confidence in production intent software releases.

Hardware

MotoHawk Controllers

MotoHawk Controllers and complimentary MotoHawk software offer an alternative approach to the traditional programming languages: These controllers allow developers to leverage the graphical programming environment of MATLAB Simulink to quickly and easily create, edit, and debug application software.

Raptor Telematics

New Eagle has developed a MotoHawk compatible Telematics platform, which enables remote tracking and management of assets through GPS and cellular data technology. This system serves as gateway for remote administration of vehicles and data analysis. The New Eagle telematics platform can monitor and analyze driver behavior, measure fuel consumption, and detect maintenance issues with vehicles before they become a problem. The seamless integration between the New Eagle Telematics Control Module (TCM) and New Eagle ECUs also allows the option for remote calibration, reflashing of the ECU, and fault reporting.

New Eagle delivers a complete telematics solution including hardware, software, cellular plan, web server, and web portal interface. To learn more or access product support pages, click on the link below.

Application Libraries

A number of application libraries are available for MotoHawk. Application libraries allow software developers to leverage pre-validated code that might otherwise be tedious and time-consuming to create from scratch. See the MotoHawk Application Libraries page for more details.

Training

MotoHawk Training, led by our team of experienced system engineers, provides hands-on experience which enables the new practitioner to gain familiarity with the MotoHawk tool chain by building, deploying, calibrating, and refining a real world control application. The training is an intensive three-day course that introduce users to MotoHawk ECU Based Rapid Prototyping and general Model-Based Controls Engineering.

MotoHawk Maintenance and Support Policy

Maintenance

  • A MotoHawk license is a perpetual, non-ending license to use the software, controlled via the dongle. Maintenance is optional.
  • New purchasers of MotoHawk are given the ability to upgrade their MotoHawk for 1 additional major release of MotoHawk apart from the one they purchase, and support to submit bug fixes / feature requests.
  • The additional upgrade should be sequentially 'next' major release to the one purchased.
  • All beta versions of a particular MotoHawk major release(e.g. 2010aBeta2, 2010aBeta3) are counted under a single major release i.e 2010a.
    • For example, at the time of purchasing MotoHawk, I am given the current dongle (i.e. MotoHawk 2011a), and I am eligible to upgrade the dongle to 2011b and its Beta releases. I am not eligible for a free upgrade to MotoHawk 2012a and must pay for the maintenance to do so.
  • Maintenance purchases come with the ability to extend the upgrades to two additional major releases. These additional versions should also be sequential to previous license.
  • All license access is controlled via the USB dongle.
  • If the original license or the Maintenance expires you are no longer eligible for software support.
to Purchase

Support

  • MotoHawk is a production software development environment, useful for prototyping or production. It is intended to be used by an experienced engineer in mechatronics, controls and embedded engineering. As such, the purchase of training and applications engineering is encouraged to use the tool.
  • New purchases and maintenance purchases (licenses under maintenance) have the ability to submit problems and make feature requests of the product (defined as "standard support"), but are not entitled to applications consulting which is defined as extensive installation support, general troubleshooting, and general usage of Mathworks, MotoHawk, embedded hardware and software issues. These items are provided in applications support contracts that are sold via monthly retainers, time and material consulting, or via a production supply agreement for modules.
  • Current MotoHawk customers are entitled to the ability to download additional documentation, participating on forums for trouble shooting and applications support, and the wiki.
  • MotoHawk customers are encouraged to attend a training class from New Eagle or a qualfied partner, or use the consulting contract as a means to gain experience with the product. For information on the training course, visit MotoHawk Training
  • MotoHawk users are encouraged to participate in or watch the webinars that are open for training and learning of the product.
