Bus Signals in the Generated Code 6

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Blog reader Paul J. shared with us his mental model of the bus as a structure. While this isn’t true of virtual buses, it is precisely true of nonvirtual buses. In fact, when you generate the code for a nonvirtual bus using Real-Time Workshop, the result is a structure.... read more >>

Nonvirtual Bus Signals 8

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Most Simulink users have a good idea of what a bus signal is but I have found people are not as clear about what distinguishes virtual and nonvirtual buses. We have discussed bus signals in recent posts, and we are now ready to answer blog reader Han Geerligs request for “more explanation on... read more >>

How do you think about virtual buses? 4

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Today I present for your reading pleasure a continuation of our discussion on mux and bus signals. Last week we looked at the advanced uses of Mux Blocks. This week I want to discuss the mental model of virtual bus signals.... read more >>

Advanced Maneuvers using Mux and Demux 13

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Last week I started a discussion of mux and bus signals. Our mental model of the mux signal is a vector. The Mux and Demux Blocks can do more than just combine and break apart the elements of a vector. This week I want to go a level... read more >>

Springtime and R2008a 6

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

I am eager for winter to release its icy grip on New England. Fortunately, change is in the air and spring is around the corner. At work, the big change is the new release of MATLAB. After installation I immediately notice the slight differences in the UI…. read more >>
