Target Computer Setup
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.

1. Target Computer Setup
- Target Computer Settings
Configure the Simulink Real-Time environment as required by the target computer. Speedgoat® target machines support PCI bus Ethernet cards.
2. Target Computer Boot Configuration
- Real-Time Application and Target Computer Modes
Run real-time applications by using the target computer in connected mode, standalone mode, or external mode. Speedgoat target machines boot the QNX® Neutrino® RTOS and then you run real-time applications in the selected target computer mode.
3. Installation Test
- Application and Driver Scripts
Examine models and scripts that illustrate Simulink Real-Time features.
Configuration and Control Alternatives
- Configure and Control Target Computer
Configuring and controlling Simulink Real-Time interactively and by writing scripts and programs.
