    This paper reports a design trajectory for rapid prototyping embedded software that is motivated by an obvious fact that nowadays it is impossible to separate control engineering from the software production. Besides these two are found in definitions of mechatronics, this approach deals with refinement and a thorough exploitation of their strong natural interdependency. It is another truism that in an engineering cycle of a mechatronic or, more general, automatically controlled product, a time span from a concept to the first prototype is too large. An idea of an immediate real-world validation of a modelled and simulated control system is inarguably attractive. The paper provides a detailed description of the framework that makes migration from a modelled and simulated controller design to an implementation on a chosen processing unit a few mouse clicks far-off. Moreover, a debugging facility by off-line monitoring the execution of the automatically generated code is documented. Described trajectory is based on our 20-sim modelling and simulation PC software package in combination with various hardware targets, with an Analog Devices Inc. DSP board as an instance
