Simulink | Prerequisites and Supported Features

Hyperlink is a HYPERSIM module allowing users to import Simulink models via code generation.

Supported Features

  • MATLAB versions from R2015b to R2023b
  • MATLAB Coder license
  • Simulink Coder or Embedded Coder license
  • Multiple instances modelling: ability to use several instances of the same Simulink model
  • Tunable parameters
  • Model confidentiality via compilation
  • Multiple time step code generation (R2015b to R2019b only, Simulink coder only). Embedded coder and model confidentiality are not supported
  • Multiple rates within one model
  • Inline S-functions and MATLAB functions
  • Support of non-inline S-functions (allow users to write custom C code in Simulink models) for Embedded coder targets (R2015b to R2023b) and Simulink coder target (R2015b to R2023b)
  • Integration of Simulink Scopes (to monitor internal variables via HYPERSIM sensors)
  • Only standard Simulink signals can be exchanged with HYPERSIM
  • Simscape components can be imported via voltage and current measurement and injection converting Simscape signals to standard Simulink signals
  • Fixed step solvers: discrete and ode1
  • Fixed step solvers: ode2, ode3, ode4, ode5, ode8 and ode14x are supported if a zero-order hold (with a sample period of a major time step) is inserted before each output of the model

Minimal Prerequisites

  • MATLAB version between R2015b and R2023b
  • The MATLAB license must include:
    • MATLAB coder (to generate C/C++ code on MATLAB, prerequisite for Simulink Coder)
    • Simulink coder (to generated C/C++ code on Simulink)

The Embedded coder license can be used for a better optimization and customization on the generated code improving the performance.

Unsupported Functionalities

  • Simulink model with variable time step: the time step for the solver is always fixed
  • External mode (ability to modify model parameters during the simulation): it’s replaced by tunable parameters in HYPERSIM
  • Data logging
  • S-functions based on .m (S-functions based on C-code are allowed)
  • m-functions (except by using the MATLAB function block)
