Hi, I work on a C2000 Processor with Matlab Simulink and CCS. It's the LaunchPadXL with a C28069 chip on it. At the moment, I can read live data using the simulink file from the mathworks example:
In this example they used the blocks Host SCI Setup and Host SCI Receive (file Host_rx.slx). I can copy it and it works in my programm. But now i want to send data to the target and i don't find those blocks in my Simulink library. I reinstalled Embedded Coder and it still not appears. I saw in Add-On explorer that they should have been there (Embedded Coder®/ Embedded Targets/ Host Communication) but they are not.
I would be very thankful if you could help me.
Thank you
Eric

Did you try to install the Embedded Coder Support Package for Texas Instruments C2000 Processors. It contains a bunch of blocks and functionality for TI C2000 MCU's
To get that, go to Add-ons -> Get Hardware Support Packages
Good luck,

Similar problem, the HOST SCI Block set is unavailable.

Data through SCI can be send using the Instrument Control Toolbox. There you cand find a Serial Send and a Serial Configuration block.

Try reinstalling the "Instrument Control Toolbox". This worked for me.
