Where is the Reverse Multi-port Switch Block? 2

I recently noticed requests for a block implementing a behavior that might be called "Reverse Multiport Switch". You can find a few request like that on MATLAB Answers here and here. In my... read more >>

What Is Simulation? 5

This week we are taking a break from Simulink features and capabilities to take a step back and look at the history of simulations. What Is Simulation? Sometimes it is good to take a step back... read more >>

Debugging C/C++ S-Functions 12

If you are going to work with C or C++ S-Functions, you will probably need to do some debugging. My advice is: Don't go with the printf debugging approach. I did that for too long and now I... read more >>

SimMechanics Second Generation 26

SimMechanics users, the first time you opened the Simulink Library Browser in R2012a, you probably noticed a big change: SimMechanics Second Generation SimMechanics Second Generation is a... read more >>

Automatically Improving Model Performance

Since I joined the technical support department at MathWorks, one of the questions I received the most often is: Can you make my model go faster? Over the years I gained experience with model... read more >>

An Ounce of Design Min/Max is Worth…

Often, it is worth putting a bit of extra effort at the beginning of a project to save time later. Today I want to introduce a feature that gets more useful with every release of Simulink, but... read more >>

New options for debugging in R2012b 1

Today I want to highlight R2012b features very useful when debugging a model. Using the simulation stepping and conditional breakpoints, you should be able to run your simulation up to a certain... read more >>

Resizing blocks in R2012b 2

This week I want to share two new ways of resizing blocks in R2012b. Those might seem very minor, but I think they can be very useful. Keeping Ratio If you hold the Shift key while resizing a... read more >>

You say “sȯ-dər”, I say “sōl-dər” 4

This week, guest blogger Jason Ghidella talks about solder joints. I say “sōl-dər” After reading Michael Carone’s blog post on smart signal routing, I was immediately motivated to talk about... read more >>

Smart Signal Routing 22

This week guest blogger Michael Carone is here to talk about improvements to signal routing in Simulink R2012b. Smart Signal Routing Has this ever happened to you: You have two blocks that you... read more >>
