Software Reboot

Restart target computer software


Simulink® Real-Time™ Library for Target Information


You can use the Software Reboot block to restart the target computer when your simulation reaches a certain state. For example, you can restart the target computer when your control system becomes unstable.

This block has one input. The input is the restart signal and accepts the following values:

  • 1 — Restarts the target computer.

  • 0 — If you use a Software Reboot block and you do not want the target computer to restart, the input value to this block must be 0.

    Note:   Some systems do not support restarting from software. To test whether your system supports a software restart, from the MATLAB® Command Window, enter slrttest. For more information, see Run Confidence Test on Configuration.

Block Parameters

Sample time

Enter the base sample time or a multiple of the base sample time (-1 means sample time is inherited).
