Target Computer Setup

Target computer configuration with Simulink® Real-Time™ Explorer or MATLAB® language

To run a real-time application on a target computer, first configure your target computer with the required I/O modules and Ethernet ports. Physically connect it to the development computer with a TCP/IP Ethernet link. Configure the Simulink Real-Time target settings with Simulink Real-Time Explorer or MATLAB language. Finally, build and download the real-time application to the target computer.
