Altair Embed®

Visual Environment for Embedded System Development

Altair Embed is a powerful tool for nonlinear simulation and model-based firmware development. With Altair Embed, you design, analyze, and simulate using block diagrams and state charts. You can then automatically generate compact and optimized firmware to run on an extensive selection of microcontrollers.

Offering deep support for the most popular on-chip peripherals and libraries for electric motor control, digital power design, and image and video processing, Altair Embed lowers development costs by removing the need for manual coding which reduces errors and speeds the edit debug cycle with easy to use Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) capability.

Why Altair Embed?

Prebuilt e-Drive Diagrams

Field-oriented Control (FOC) motor drive diagrams let you quickly spin your motor PMSM, ACI or Synchronous Reluctance motor on your inverter.

Highly Efficient Code

The auto-generated code runs rapidly and produces high-quality results with no need to hand-code in order to speed up the execution of your code.

Test and Verify Embedded Systems

Simulate controller and plant to easily tune your controller off-line, then use integrated Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) to debug and tune your controller on the embedded target.


Get started with the Altair Embed Personal Edition

Contains all you need for rapid firmware generation for STM32 and TI F28x including GPIO, ADC, PWM, CAN, UART, I2C, SPI. Base your project on included example suites for eMotor drives, digital power, and more.

Key Features

Tailored for Embedded System Development

Generate efficient and compact ANSI C code for dynamic systems involving scaled, fixed-point operations. Tune parameters and monitor real-time data.

Block Diagrams and State Diagrams

Simulate dynamic systems including continuous or discrete-time behaviors as well as event-based behaviors.


No manual coding required. Automatically convert your block diagrams and state charts to microcontroller unit (MCU) hardware-ready code.

Support for Popular Target MCU Hardware

Includes support for a broad range of microcontrollers and processors suited for most industrial and academic applications.

Interactive HIL Testing

Run a plant model in Altair Embed on the host computer while controlling algorithm runs in real-time on the target MCU, communicating via a HotLink.

Add-ons for Digital Power and Electric Motor Drives

Simulate and generate code for power supply and digital power components and controls. Develop optimal control systems for electric drives and provide a robust algorithm for rotor angle estimation.
