Quality software for your purposes

Simulink is a dynamic interdisciplinary modeling environment for complex technical systems and the primary tool for modern-based design. Its main interface is a graphical tool for creating diagrams and a customizable set of block libraries. It offers tight integration with the MATLAB environment and can either use MATLAB or build scripts.

Simulink is widely used in automatic control and digital signal processing for multi-domain simulation and model-based design. This program is multiplatform and has a version for Windows. We will tell you more about it.

What is this program?

Simulink is a graphical simulation environment that allows you to build dynamic models using block diagrams as directed graphs, including discrete, continuous, hybrid, nonlinear, and discontinuous systems.

The Simulink interactive environment enables the use of ready-made block libraries for modeling electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic systems, as well as applying an advanced model-centric approach for control systems, digital communications, and real-time devices.

Optional Simulink add-on packages perform various tasks, from model concept development to testing, verification, code generation, and hardware implementation. Simulink is integrated into the MATLAB environment to allow you to use built-in mathematical algorithms, powerful data processing tools, and scientific graphics.

Program features

Together with its other products, Simulink for Windows can automatically generate C source code to implement real-time systems. As the efficiency and flexibility of the code improve, it is becoming more widely used for production systems. It is also a tool for developing embedded systems due to its flexibility and ability to iterate quickly. The built-in coder creates efficient code for use in built-in systems.

Model-based design

Simulink for Windows is designed for system-level modeling and simulation. It allows a comprehensive study of the system under development in a single-design environment.

Simulations enable verification of system behavior under critical conditions or emergency scenarios. This reduces the cost of expensive physical prototypes. System verification is accomplished through semi-natural simulation and rapid prototyping.

Simulink models support the automatic generation of industry-quality code in C, C++, and HDL. The results of the generated code and the model are identical. The next step is to deploy the code to the target computer or FPGA/ASIC.

The advantages of MATLAB

Simulink for Windows is an application for the MATLAB package. When simulating using Simulink, the principle of visual programming is implemented. According to it, the user creates a model of the device and performs calculations on the screen with the help of the library of standard blocks. In this case, unlike classical ways of modeling, the user does not need to thoroughly learn the programming language and numerical methods of mathematics. General knowledge required when working on a computer and ability in the subject area is enough.

MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical calculations. It includes computation, visualization, and programming in a user-friendly environment where tasks and solutions are expressed as mathematical. MATLAB is usually used in the following ways:

  • Mathematical calculations;

  • Algorithm creation;

  • Analysis, research, and visualization of data;

  • Scientific and engineering graphics;

  • Application development, including the design of graphical interfaces.

Algorithms created in MATLAB need not be reworked for reuse in Simulink. MATLAB code is added to a Simulink block or Stateflow diagram without modifications.

MATLAB is also used to create input data sets for system simulations. Simulations are scaled into clusters to speed up engineering tasks, such as parameter enumeration or optimization, and the results are then analyzed and visualized in MATLAB.
