In many cases, you may want your code to run faster and more efficiently. Code acceleration provides optimizations for accelerating fixed-point algorithms through MEX file building. In Fixed-Point Designer™ the fiaccel function converts your MATLAB® code to a MEX function and can greatly accelerate the execution speed of your fixed-point algorithms.
Code generation creates efficient, production-quality C/C++ code for desktop and embedded applications. There are several ways to use Fixed-Point Designer software to generate C/C++ code.
|MATLAB Coder™ (codegen) function||Automatically convert MATLAB code to C/C++ code||MATLAB Coder code generation software license||C Code Generation at the Command Line in the MATLAB Coder documentation|
|MATLAB Function||Use MATLAB code in your Simulink® models that generate embeddable C/C++ code||Simulink license||What Is a MATLAB Function Block? in the Simulink documentation|
MATLAB code generation supports variable-size arrays and matrices with known upper bounds. To learn more about using variable-size signals, see What Is Variable-Size Data?.
