The Additional Math and Discrete Simulink® library is a group of custom blocks created by extending the functionality of built-in Simulink blocks. The Additional Discrete library contains a number of masked blocks that extend the functionality of the standard Unit Delay block. See Libraries for more general information on Simulink libraries.
The Simulink product provides a number of examples that show how to incorporate MATLAB® functions into a custom block.
The Single Hydraulic Cylinder Simulation,
uses a Fcn block to model the control valve flow. In
addition, the Control
Valve Flow block is a library link to one of a number of custom
blocks in the library
The Radar Tracking Model,
uses an Interpreted MATLAB Function block to model
an extended Kalman filter. The MATLAB function
the Kalman filter found inside the Radar
Kalman Filter subsystem. In this example, the MATLAB function
requires three inputs, which are bundled together using a Mux block
in the Simulink model.
The Spiral Galaxy Formation example,
uses several MATLAB Function blocks to construct two
galaxies and calculate the effects of gravity as these two galaxies
nearly collide. The example also uses MATLAB Function blocks
to plot the simulation results using a subset of MATLAB functions
not supported for code generation. However, because these MATLAB
Function blocks have no outputs, the Simulink Coder™ product
optimizes them away during code generation.
The Simulink product provides a number of examples that
show how to incorporate System objects into a custom block. Access
the MATLAB source code for
each System object™ by clicking the
code link from the block dialog box. For more information
on using MATLAB System blocks and System objects, see System Object Integration).
System Identification for an FIR System Using MATLAB
uses the MATLAB System block to
implement Simulink blocks
using a System object. It highlights two MATLAB System blocks.
MATLAB System Block with Variable-Size Input and Output
uses the MATLAB System block to implement Simulink blocks
with variable-size input and output signals. Due to the use of variable-size
signals, the example uses System object propagation methods.
Illustration of Law of Large Numbers Using MATLAB
uses MATLAB System blocks to illustrate the law of large numbers.
Due to the use of MATLAB functions not supported for code generation,
the example uses System object propagation methods and interpreted
