Embedded Development using VisSim - Visual Solutions
"VisSim is a block diagram language for creating complex nonlinear dynamic systems. To create a model, simply drag blocks in the workspace and connect them with wires. Then click the Go button to initiate your simulation. The response is instantaneous."
"VisSim's tightly integrated development platform makes it easy to pass freely among the stages of model construction, simulation, optimization, and validation. This means you can create virtual prototypes on your desktop and make sure they're working properly before committing to the design."
VisSim - Digital Power Designer
VisSim/Digital Power Designer provides high level blocks for simulation and code generation of power supply and digital power components and controls. VisSim/Digital Power Designer blocks let you develop a working controller which can be directly downloaded to the MCU for digital power applications.

Tibbits and Tibbo - Modular and Programmable
Tibbits (as in "Tibbo Bits") are blocks of prepackaged I/O functionality housed in color-coded plastic shells. Want an ADC? There is a Tibbit for this. 5V power supply? Got that! RS232/422/485 port? PoE? PWM? We have these, and many other Tibbits, too.
Each TPP can accommodate multiple Tibbit modules and connectors. Only bare essentials are provided on each boards: There is a CPU, an Ethernet port, and a very simple power supply. The rest of the board’s functionality is defined by what Tibbits you plug in. There are several TPP “sizes” that differ in the number of Tibbits they can accommodate.

"Control Tutorials for MATLAB and Simulink. They are designed to help you learn how to use MATLAB and Simulink for the analysis and design of automatic control systems. They cover the basics of MATLAB and Simulink, the most common classical control design techniques (PID, root locus, and frequency response), as well as some modern (state-space) control design and digital control. "
Example: Digital DC Motor Speed Control with PID Control Continuous to Discrete Conversion
PID Controller In this page, we will consider the digital control version of DC motor speed problem. A digital DC motor model can be obtained from conversion of the analog model, as we will describe. The controller for this example will be designed by a PID method. - Control Tutorials
