Simulink® Desktop Real-Time™ includes several example models you
can use to test your installation. These models are preconfigured
with settings such as target and scope settings, sample time, and
integration algorithm. To see these models, type
the MATLAB® Command Window.
Once you have finished installing the Simulink Desktop Real-Time software
and kernel, you should test the installation by running the model
If you change your installation, you should repeat this test to confirm
that the Simulink Desktop Real-Time software is still working. To
open the example model, type
sldrtex_vdp in the MATLAB Command
Window, or launch MATLAB Help, open Simulink Desktop
Real-Time, and choose Examples > Real-Time Van der Pol Simulation.
sldrtex_vdp does not have I/O blocks,
so that you can run this model regardless of the I/O boards in your
computer. Running this model will test the installation by running Simulink Coder™ code
generation software, Simulink Desktop Real-Time software, and the Simulink Desktop Real-Time kernel.
After you have installed the Simulink Desktop Real-Time kernel,
you can test the entire installation by building and running a real-time
application. The Simulink Desktop Real-Time software includes the
sldrtex_vdp, which already has Simulink Coder options
selected for you:
In the MATLAB Command Window, type
The Simulink model
Double click Switch To External Mode on the model.
Tip The model is initially in normal mode. At this point, you might start real-time normal mode simulation by clicking Simulation > Run.
Click the Run button on the toolbar.
After building the model and displaying messages in the Diagnostic Viewer, the target application begins running.
To stop the simulation before the end, click the Stop button on the toolbar.
The real-time application stops running, and the Scope window stops displaying the output signals.
The Simulink Desktop Real-Time software provides the command
displaying the kernel version number, followed by timer, driver, and
other information. To see this information, in the MATLAB Command
The command displays several lines of information in the MATLAB Command Window. Some possible lines and their interpretations are:
TIMERS: Number Period Running 1 0.01 Yes
The indicated timer(s) exist on your system with the period and run status shown for each timer.
DRIVERS: Name Address Parameters Humusoft AD512 0x300  ecg 0 
The indicated device driver(s) are installed on your system at the address and with the parameter(s) shown for each driver.
The examples library includes models with preset values and dialog boxes. These models include simple signal processing and simple control examples that use no I/O blocks, use A/D blocks only, and use both A/D and D/A blocks.
To run an example that uses I/O blocks, you must configure the Adapter block to match the I/O board installed in your computer.
To see these models from the MATLAB environment:
the MATLAB Command Window.
The Simulink Desktop Real-Time Demos window displays.
