New Stuff – Simulink R2009b 8

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Last week the MathWorks released the R2009b family of products.  There are many new capabilities in the latest release and with this blog post, I want to highlight a some of the features in Simulink I’m really excited about.  While you read this, start installing the latest products from the MathWorks.com downloads area (login and... read more >>

Advanced Masking Concepts 17

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Masking does more than just put a professional interface on your algorithm.  Simulink blocksets provide elaborate graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to control the behavior of blocks.  The block dialog can dynamically enable and disable its GUI elements.  Blocks can sprout additional ports in order to accept parameters as input signals.  The algorithm can rewire... read more >>

How To Make Your Own Simulink Block 51

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Today I want to introduce a fundamental Simulink concept: masking a block.  Masking provides you with a way to put an interface on an algorithm.  This can centralize the system parameters for easier viewing, or hide the complexity from unintentional tampering by other users.  Masking can also be used to dress up your model... read more >>

Libraries in Simulink 26

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Have you ever noticed the same block constructs occurring repeatedly in your model?  Simulink libraries provide you with a way to capture the template for an algorithm, and then reuse that template all over your model.  For this post, I will to introduce the basic concepts of libraries, library blocks, and library links.... read more >>
