I am getting this error while trying to run Simulink with ccsv7. "Your current working folder is:
C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2017a\bin
Simulink does not permit you to modify the MATLAB installation area.
Please change to a working folder that is not in the MATLAB
installation area and re-try the previous command.'" Please help.

Hi Oscar,

The example you are referring to was first released as a file exchange entry based on R2016b.
You can download it using this page:
It contains a video that goes through the technical details. I encourage you to watch it, it will help you understand the different parts of the models (skip to 5m30s on the video to get to the technical details).
I hope it helps, thanks for the high rating!
Good luck,

Hi Antonin,
I am using Matlab 2016b and Embedded Coder® Support Package for Texas Instruments™ C2000™ Processors to program a TI F28337S Launchpad. I noted that some examples highlighted in the Mathworks webpage are not available for me (for instance this one: I suppose that probably I need to upgrade to 2017 Matlab version in order to have available these resources, however this could take a while in my company. It is possible to obtain the .slx files of these models without upgrade to Matlab 2017?
Regards, Oscar

Hi Antonin,
When I run the chech for embedded target model, I am getting this message:

Check and update embedded target model to use ert.tlc system target file. Only the models whose system target file is set to idelink_ert.tlc, idelink_grt.tlc, or realtime.tlc and whose board matches one of the supported hardware boards can be updated. If the model can be updated, the model parameters will be converted to support use of ert.tlc system target file.

This model was not updated to use ert.tlc system target file.

- The model must not be dirty. Save the model and restart the task.

I am presently using Piccolo Launchpad.

Hi Akshay,

You are opening a Simulink model that has been saved with an earlier version of MATLAB. Just follow the instructions that are provided to you (i.e. Open the Upgrade Advisor and run the check "Check and update embedded target model to use ert.tlc system target file to upgrade the model to the supported workflow).
Once you complete the step and save the model, you won't see this message again.

I hope it helps,

I am using MATLAB 2017a and getting the following error when I try to build a Simulink model with CCSv5:
he build process will terminate as a result.
Caused by:
The model is configured to use a hardware board that has changed significantly since the release of MATLAB in which it was originally saved. Open the Upgrade Advisor and run the check "Check and update embedded target model to use ert.tlc system target file" to upgrade the model to the supported workflow.

I would like to know the solution to this error.

Hi Gerhard,
Sad to see your 1-star rating, it would be good to provide feedback we can react to.
We have been seeing an increased number of download failures that has been identified by our network team as a problem with our web partner hosting third party content. They are actively working on resolving the problem. The only work around I have for now is to retry the installation as it seems like the problem is sporadic.

Hi all,
Would you let me know about my stupid question,
how can I send a word by SCI from embedded coder? my device is experimenter 28335 and the receiver is the computer. for number I don't have any problem for communication, just I need to send a word by serial interface, but I need to use embedded coder for programming NOT CCS.

R2017b is out!

Here are the new features available in R2017b:
- Support for F28004x processors with ADC, PWM, GPIO, SCI and interrrupts.
- CCSv7 Support
- Support for external interrupts. You can now react on external interrupts using the hardware interrupt block.
- New SPI Master transfer block, shipping along with SPI enhancements to the existing SPI blocks.
More information about the release on this page:

Hi Song-Hong,

You need the Embedded Coder product ( to be able to install this support package. Unfortunately, Embedded Coder is not available on the student license. Check with your school to get access to Embedded Coder.
Alternatively, you can use Arduino, Raspberry PI, Lego with Simulink and micro:bit, Nucleo, K64F with a Simulnk Coder license that is available as an add-on for the student license.
Here are the list of products available for the student license:
I hope it helps,


I use student license to install this Embedded coder for MATLAB 2017a version, but a message appears in the beginning after I click install button.
The content is about "There was a problem downloading the support package".
I try to handle it by MATLAB Answer webpage offers method, but it effected nothing.
Would you tell me how to haddle it?

Best regards,

I deploy the model to hardware but the LD2 red light doesn' t on after the building proccess ends

In TI C2000 double is supported as “long double” which will affect the execution performance badly if not used judiciously. So use of double is not recommended unless it is really required. We have a workaround if one may need so. You can use the data type replacement feature under code generation tab. The replacement name for double can be provided as "float64". This "float64" is alias for long double which is already typecast in the device header included in codegen.
Then do the following at MATLAB command window.
>> float64 = Simulink.AliasType;
>> float64.HeaderFile = 'F2806x_Device.h'; // you can specify your choice of device specific file here...
>> float64.BaseType = 'double'
In the generated code all double variables in Simulink will now represent long double in generated code which is 64bit float. The alias name float64 is what is visible in generated code.
You may also consider working with fixed point and see if that helps.

I have a problem when I convert simulink to single data format or when I run my simulink model on lunckxl-f28377s. As we know, This DSP has 32 bit processor. Therefore my model including a feedback loop (phase locked loop) cause increasing numerical error when estimate parameters. It estimate frequency. In 64 bit version (double), it has not error but in 32 bit version it has error. How can i fix it?

Hi there,
I met a problem when I used the Simulink to generate CCS project for F28027P with external mode. Here are the errors associated with ext_svr_c2000.c:

I met a problem when I used the software to generate CCS project.
When my open my CCS6 to build the project,it told me that the profile_timer.c and code_profiling_utility_functions.c
are not linked well.
Then i found profile_timer.c in the root c/matlab/...........tic2000/src(not quite accurate)
and the code_profiling_utility_functions.c in the folder named instrumented.
I linked these two .c documents and went on succeeded.
Can you tell me what's wrong or how to fix the problem?

Sorry, in my message below, only the 17a update is out today, you will have to wait a few more days for the 16b update. Thanks.

@Julio Perez,

The April release of the support package, on both R2016b and R2017a should fix the problem you are describing. Let us know.


Too bad this is not supported for Mac/Linux users :(

I am tring sending data between the f28335 development kit and DAC9881 right now. the problem is that the spi blocks in this package only support 16bits data transfer, while DAC9881 only receive 24 bit(first 8bits unused) data. how do i solve it?


Antonin (view profile)

R2017a is out!

Here are a few exciting features that you will find in this release:

* CCS project creation. You will find a link at the bottom of the diagnostic viewer, after you generate code, which opens a CCS project that you can debug, modify, rebuild, reload, etc.

* I2C and SPI blocks for F28x7x devices with examples including reading sensors from the BOOSTXL-SENSORS Booster Pack.

* Multitasking profiling, this first version of the tool doesn't support interrupts but allows you to measure synchronous task execution time and visualize preemptions.

This is obviously non-exhaustive and you will find plenty of other enhancements in addition to all the mainstream features that you will get with R2017a.

Hi Julio,

We identified one problem that will affect the case that you are describing.
We are working on a fix that we will publish in the next release of the support package. We could give you a patch via Tech Support in the meantime, feel free to contact us.

I have been developing a decopling control for two motors using Simulink and TI Delfino F28377xS. After updating the support packages from version 16.2.3 to 16.2.5 (the latest) i'm cannot chose any more the setting "Default Parameter behavior " as Inlined and select some Parameters as Tunable using Batch Download. is there any way to get the support packages installation files for the version 16.2.3


Antonin (view profile)

Hi Tim,

Go to help or type doc, go to Hardware Support, click on "Embedded Coder Support Package for Texas Instruments C2000 Processors", you will land on the main documentation page for the support package where you will find the link to the examples.

I hope it helps

Hi, I have installed the latest version but can't find the the examples in the libary browser anymore. Where can I get them?

In 16b, we added drastic improvements to serial External mode. You can monitor one 32-bit signal @5kHz and we tested 20 32-bit signals @1kHz without data drops. This is close to 100x faster than previous versions. You can increase the baudrate of the serial over USB of your Launchpad or controlCard. On Launchpads and recent controlCards using FTDI 2232H, you can pick any baudrates below or equal to 6Mbps, or exactly 9 or 12Mbps. On old controlCards using FTDI 2232D, you can pick any baudrates below or equal to 1.5Mbps, or exactly 2 or 3Mbps. Increase your SCIA baudrate in the configuration parameters to take advantage of this enhanced feature.

F28x7x devices have now blocks for eQEP, eCAP and DAC in 16b.

The CLA is supported on all devices in 16b.

I have doped out a solution to the problem successful this time!It was something wrong to log in last time maybe!

Math Works

Could not Log in beacause of not having account.Can you help me?

MathWorks and TI co-presented a webinar recently on Embedded Coder Support Package for C2000 and you can now view it here:

The first half of the presentation is about c2000 hardware capabilities and applications from TI and overview of Model-Based Design by MathWorks. If you jump to the 25:55 second portion of the webinar, you can see a detailed demo of the C2000 support package.

Hi Paola,
We rely on peripheral header files shipped by TI. Historically we were shipping some of these files, we now rely on the installation of ControlSuite which is a more sustainable approach for the long term.
I understand that this is an extra burden on your side to download ControlSuite and point to the installation folder. You get the advantage of being able to use the latest version from TI that may fix bugs in earlier versions or adjust to silicon revision changes.
The files are needed to access peripherals like ADC, PWM, I2C, SPI, etc.
I hope this helps, let us know how we could make the experience better for you.
Antonin @ MathWorks

Would be glad to know everything you Need to install it. Now you need to install also the TI Control Suite, right? Without it, I could not install it. Why is this needed? Is code generation per click already supported here, just as it was for CCS3? Thanks for your help!


Tom Erkkinen

Hi Pang,

For R2013a and earlier, the TI C2000 Target is provided directly with your Embedded Coder installation and does not require a separate Support Package download. You can try the >>c2000lib command or search the help for more information.

Hi, I am using Matlab R2013a , I can't install it through targetinstaller via internet. Is the support package not valid for this version of Matlab?

huang ying
