Hardware Implementation Overview

Specify hardware options to simulate and generate code for models of computer-based systems, such as embedded controllers.

Hardware Implementation pane parameters do not control hardware or compiler behavior. The parameters describe hardware and compiler properties for the MATLAB® software.

  • Specifying hardware characteristics enables simulation of the model to detect error conditions that can arise when executing code, such as hardware overflow.

  • MATLAB uses the information to generate code for the platform that runs as efficiently as possible. MATLAB software also uses the information to give bit-true agreement for the results of integer and fixed-point operations in simulation and generated code.
