Run on Custom Hardware

Run external mode simulations

Since R2019b


The Run on Custom Hardware app enables you to run external mode simulations on your development computer or other target hardware. In an external mode simulation, you can tune parameters in real time and monitor target application signals.

To run an external mode simulation, you:

  1. Build the target application on your development computer.

  2. Deploy the target application to the target hardware.

  3. Connect Simulink® to the target application that runs on the target hardware.

  4. Start execution of generated code on the target hardware.

Using the app, you can:

  • Perform the steps separately or with one click.

  • Register custom launchers that deploy the target application.

Run on Custom Hardware app

Open the Run on Custom Hardware App

On the Apps tab, click Run on Custom Hardware. Or, on the C Code tab, select Verify Code > Run on Custom Hardware.
