New features

  • Improved stability and performance when opening and closing RT-LAB.

  • Added support for MATLAB 2021 a/b.
    IMPORTANT: With changes in the .mdl file format starting with MATLAB 2021b, please note that we currently only support this format in beta mode. While we're still evaluating whether we will fully support it in future releases, we strongly recommend to save your models in .slx file format. If using .slx file format poses an issue, please contact our support team:

  • Added checks to avoid recording more than the maximum file size (2 Go) on 32 bits targets.

  • Improved Orchestra I/O to accept relative paths to XML configuration file.

  • Added RAM and motherboard information to target diagnostic tool.

  • Added OPAL-RT Simulink block available in MATLAB quick insert list.

  • Added boolean data type support in the DataLogger.

  • Added jitter detection mechanism during idle time (hardware and software sync).

  • OP5367-1, OP5367-3, OP5367-5, OP5360-3: Added support for new cards in S-function drivers and OPAL-RT Board

  • Mezzanine Option S-function: Changed block to add the configuration of the thresholds of the OP5367-3, OP5367-5 cards

  • IEC 61850: Added new I/O interface with support for the MMS feature.

  • IEC 61850: Added conversion wizard to port legacy configuration and connections to the new interface.

  • IEC 61850: Added new SFunction helper block that outputs the clock in the format needed by the GOOSE timestamp attributes.

  • AsyncSerial: Added RS-485 half-duplex mode.

  • AFDX: Added support for OPAL-RTLinux platforms.

  • AFDX: Added protection mechanism against using the wrong firmware.

  • MODBUS Master: Added the triggered read/write functionality.

  • ARINC429: Added support for dynamic SDI.

  • OPAL-RT Board: Expanded the OP4510 (Kintex-7) chassis type to OP4510/OP4512/OP4610 (Kintex-7) to include the new products.
