Discontinued Products

Gauges Blockset™ and SystemTest™ are discontinued and no longer available for purchase. You can continue to use existing product licenses, or use alternative products.

Gauges Blockset

In place of Gauges Blockset, consider using the graphical controls and displays included in the Dashboard block library in Simulink. This library contains controls such as knobs and slider switches, and gauges such as lamps and semicircular gauges. You can add these blocks to your model to run interactive desktop simulations.


In place of SystemTest, consider scripting with MATLAB® Unit Test Framework or using Simulink Test. Simulink® Test™ provides tools for authoring, managing, and executing systematic, simulation-based tests.

Required Products

Econometrics Toolbox™ no longer requires Financial Toolbox™.
