Signal Builder

Create and generate interchangeable groups of signals whose waveforms are piecewise linear

  • Library:
  • Simulink / Sources

  • Signal Builder block

Description

Note

The Signal Builder block is not recommended. Use the Signal Editor block instead.

The Signal Builder block allows you to create interchangeable groups of piecewise linear signal sources and use them in a model. You can quickly switch the signal groups into and out of a model to facilitate testing. In the Signal Builder window, create signals and define the output waveforms.To open the window, double-click the block. See Signal Groups.

Note

Use the signalbuilder function to create and access Signal Builder blocks programmatically.
