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 >>

Frames… from signals to blocks 5

Today I want to talk about an important topic for DSP System Toolbox and Communications Toolbox users: Frame-Based Processing Beginning in R2010b, MathWorks started to significantly change the... read more >>

How Many Blocks are in that Model? 20

My colleague Sam and I wanted to find an example model with about 10,000 blocks.  I suggested the HL-20 model from the Aerospace Blockset, asbhl20.mdl.  Sam decided to measure the total number of... read more >>

Better Bus Modeling (How to remove Bus/Mux confusion) 6

Earlier this week, Guy and I were discussing the sometimes-strange behavior of mux and bus signals.  Sometimes people find a Mux block in their model that appears to output a bus signal.  In this... read more >>

The Answer for Large Scale Modeling: Model Reference 21

Your model is someone else’s component.  The Model block
allows you to treat a Simulink model as a component within a larger system.  In this
post I will discuss the basic concepts of model
reference...

R2008b Simulink: Sample Time Colors 6

Simulink models present a schematic layout of your algorithm.  The diagram encodes information about the system in the form of block icons, data type annotations, and sample time colors.  In... read more >>

A Historical Tour of the Library Browser 20

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... read more >>
