Upgrading Simulink Libraries with Forwarding Tables and Transformation Functions 3

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Upgrading Simulink Libraries with Forwarding Tables and Transformation Functions If you create and maintain Simulink libraries used in many models, or by many people, I think you will like this R2012a new feature: Interactive Library Forwarding Tables for Updating Links. Note: Library Forwarding Tables have been around for a long time, but they used to be available through the command... read more >>

Automatic Refresh of Links and Model Blocks 2

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Automatic Refresh of Links and Model Blocks The first time I tried editing models componentized with library blocks and referenced models in R2012a, I noticed something was different... ... and I really like that change! What's new In R2012a, Simulink automatically refreshes links and model blocks. Yes, you heard me, no longer need to manually select Edit > Links and... read more >>

Mixed-signal modeling with Simulink 11

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Mixed-signal modeling with Simulink If you’re a mixed-signal engineer, we have a Christmas present for you – a new library of mixed-signal blocks and demos available for free. My colleague Mike Woodward explains all. Designing mixed-signal systems with the free mixed-signal library For years now, MathWorks engineers have been building mixed-signal examples for customers. We’ve built... read more >>

Advanced Masking Concepts 17

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Advanced Masking Concepts 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 50

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

How To Make Your Own Simulink Block 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 25

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Libraries in Simulink 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. Creating a... read more >>

A Historical Tour of the Library Browser 19

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

A Historical Tour of the Library Browser When I started using Simulink, the libraries were organized a little differently than they are today. There were fewer blocks and no such thing as a Library Browser. Take a look at Simulink 1.3c from 1996. This version was a little before my time. However, users of that... read more >>
