Code generation from MATLAB® is a restricted subset of the MATLAB language that provides optimizations for:
Generating efficient, production-quality C/C++ code and MEX files for deployment in desktop and embedded applications. For embedded targets, the subset restricts MATLAB semantics to meet the memory and data type requirements of the target environments.
Accelerating fixed-point algorithms
Code generation from MATLAB supports the Communications System Toolbox™ functions
listed in Communications System Toolbox (MATLAB Coder).
You must have the DSP System Toolbox™ software installed to use
this feature. To generate C code, you must have the MATLAB Coder™ software.
If you have the Fixed-Point Designer™, you can use
fiaccel to generate MEX code for
In order to use Communications System Toolbox you must have a Signal Processing Toolbox™ license. There are a number of differences between the use of Signal Processing Toolbox functions with code generation from MATLAB and the use of these functions in the Signal Processing Toolbox software. These differences are summarized in Specifying Inputs in Code Generation for MATLAB (Signal Processing Toolbox) and illustrated in Code Generation Examples (Signal Processing Toolbox).
To follow the examples in this documentation:
To generate C/C++ code with
install the MATLAB Coder software, the Signal Processing Toolbox,
the DSP System Toolbox, and a C compiler. For the Windows® platform, MATLAB supplies
a default C compiler. Run
mex -setup at the MATLAB command
prompt to set up the C compiler.
