Hello,
I am new to simulink and I am doing a project that involves using a 4 digit 7 segment display using an Arduino UNO 3 in simulink. Can anyone direct me to any examples or methods to do this in Simulink? Also any tutorials on simulink related to arduino is much appreciated

Hi Kurukulasuriya,
There are multiple approaches to work with the display.
If your display is parallel display(interfaced using GPIO) you can follow one of the methods:
  1. Implement the in Simulink using digital output blocks
  2. Create a device driver using the following guide: https://www.mathworks.com/help/supportpkg/arduino/device-driver-blocks.html
If your diplay is connected via SPI/I2C, you can follow one of the following methods:
  1. Create the driver using SPI/I2C blocks in Simulink.
  2. Create a device driver using the library by using the following guide: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/72541-create-custom-device-driver-block-for-arduino?s_tid=prof_contriblnk
Hope this helps!!
