PLC Code Generation Basics
The basic steps for code generation are:
Create a model or open an existing model.
Configure the model for code generation by selecting the solver.
Configure PLC Coder code generation options.
The PLC Coder configuration parameters provide several options for the code generation.
|Simulink PLC Coder||Generate structured text and ladder diagram code from Simulink models, Stateflow charts, and MATLAB functions (Since R2019b)|
- Generate and Examine Structured Text Code
Get started with structured text code generation from a simple Simulink® model.
- Integrate Generated Code with Custom Code
Call the generated function block with different values of the
ssMethodTypeargument for subsystem initialization and computation steps.
- Generated Code Structure for Simple Simulink Subsystems
Map model objects in your Simulink subsystem to constructs in generated structured text code.

Code Generation for Simulink Models
- Generated Code Structure for Triggered Subsystems
Generate structured text code from a triggered subsystem and identify the trigger event-based execution in the generated code.
- Generated Code Structure for Subsystem Mask Parameters
Generate structured text code from a masked subsystem and identify the mask parameters in the generated code.
- Generate Structured Text Code from For Each Subsystems
You can use For Each subsystems to convert inefficient, repetitive algorithms into compact, easy-to-read code.
- Generate Structured Text Code for Width Blocks
The Width block is commonly used with the For Each subsystem block to compute the signal width inside the for-each loop.
