Real-Time Windows Target

Physical Device Connections

Real-Time Windows Target includes a library of I/O driver blocks that provide connections between physical I/O devices and real-time models. You can run HIL simulations to observe how Simulink models respond to real-world behavior. The I/O driver block library enables you to connect I/O signals to a range of I/O boards.

Real-Time Windows Target I/O driver blocks enable communication using either ASCII or binary data protocols of arbitrary format. Supported communication protocols include UDP for standard network connections, RS-232 for serial lines, and CAN for controller area networks.

Available I/O driver blocks include the following:

  • Analog Input: Defines A/D converters to digitize analog signals as input signals to a Simulink model
  • Analog Output: Sets up D/A converters to digitize analog signals as output signals from a Simulink model
  • Digital Input: Connects digital input signals from external hardware to the Simulink model
  • Digital Output: Connects digital output signals from the Simulink model to external hardware
  • Counter Input: Counts pulses or measures frequency using hardware counters on I/O board(s)
  • Frequency Output: Generates pulse width modulation (PWM) signals on I/O board(s)
  • Encoder Input: Includes feedback from optical encoders
  • Packet Input: Receives unformatted binary data
  • Packet Output: Sends unformatted binary data
  • Stream Input: Receives formatted ASCII data
  • Stream Output: Sends formatted ASCII data
