You can use WLAN System Toolbox™ together with MATLAB® Coder™ to create C/C++ code that implements your MATLAB functions and models. With this software, you can
Create a MEX file to speed up your own MATLAB application.
Generate a stand-alone executable that runs independently of MATLAB on your own computer or another platform.
Include System objects in the same way as any other element.
In general, the code you generate using the toolbox is portable ANSI® C code. In order to use code generation, you need a MATLAB Coder license. Using WLAN System Toolbox requires licenses for DSP System Toolbox™, Signal Processing Toolbox™, and Communications System Toolbox™. See the Getting Started with MATLAB Coder (MATLAB Coder) page for more information.
Creating a MATLAB Coder MEX-file can lead to substantial acceleration of your MATLAB algorithms. It is also a convenient first step in a workflow that ultimately leads to completely standalone code. When you create a MEX-file, it runs in the MATLAB environment. Its inputs and outputs are available for inspection just like any other MATLAB variable. You can use MATLAB’s visualization, and other tools, for verification and analysis.
Within your code, you can run specific commands either as generated
C code or by running using the MATLAB engine. In cases where
an isolated command does not yet have code generation support, you
can use the
to embed the command in your code. This means that the generated code
reenters the MATLAB environment when it needs to run that particular
command. This also useful if you wish to embed certain commands that
cannot generate code (such as plotting functions).
The simplest way to generate MEX-files from your MATLAB code
is by using the
at the command line. Often, generating a MEX-files involves nothing
more than invoking the
coder command on one of
your existing functions. For example, if you have an existing function,
you can type the commands at the command line to compile and run the
codegen adds a
platform-specific extension to this name. In this case, the
codegen myfunction.m myfunction_mex;
You can generate standalone executables that run independently
of the MATLAB environment. You can do this by creating a MATLAB
inside the MATLAB
Coder Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
Alternatively, you can issue the
in the command line environment with appropriate configuration parameters.
To create a standalone executable, you must write your own
See C/C++ Code Generation (MATLAB Coder) for
compile your code, you must set up your C/C++ compiler. For 32-bit
Windows platforms, MathWorks® supplies a default compiler
with MATLAB. If your installation
does not include a default compiler, you can supply your own compiler.
For the current list of supported compilers, see Supported
and Compatible Compilers on the MathWorks Web
site. Install a compiler that is suitable for your platform. Then,
read Setting Up the C or C++ Compiler (MATLAB Coder). After installation,
at the MATLAB command prompt,
mex -setup. You can then use the
codegen function to compile your code.
All WLAN System Toolbox functions and System objects are supported for code generation. For a list of supported functions and System objects, see WLAN System Toolbox (MATLAB Coder).
