Code Generation Environment Customization

If you are responsible for customizing the code generation environment for a component deployment project or for component deployment across an organization, consider these options.

Customization GoalDescriptionMore Information
Data representationCustomize how the code generator stores data, including matrices and arrays. Control the naming and placement of data types in generated code.Data Representation
Code interface definitionsCreate data, function, and memory section code generation definitions (for example, storage classes) for standardization and software architecture conformance.Code Interface Definitions
Code replacement Create and maintain code replacement libraries that control how and when the code generator replaces code that it generates for functions and operators.Code Replacement Customization
Model configuration settingsEstablish standard model configuration parameter settings that define how the code generator produces and compiles code from models.Model Configuration Set Customization
Custom blocksDefine code generation behavior for custom blocks by developing S-functions.Code Generation for Custom Blocks
Target Language CompilerUse the Target Language Compiler to customize generated code, inline code generated for S-function blocks, and generate additional or different types of files.Target Language Compiler
Target platform devicesFor a target platform device, select a system target file that specifies required target platform environment and code features, use the target package to extend the range of hardware that the code generator supports, and configure the code generator to use code replacement libraries.Target Platform Device Customization
Code compilationCustomize the compilation stage of the build process by using a toolchain or template makefile approach.Code Compilation Customization
Custom software for target hardwareCreate software that supports the deployment of MATLAB® and Simulink® designs to hardware platforms. Register custom toolchains for the build process, customize XCP server software for target hardware, and create a target hardware application that checks the validity of code generation assumptions. Use the target package to extend the range of supported hardware and provide connectivity between Simulink and your target hardware for external mode and processor-in-the-loop (PIL) simulations.Custom Software for Target Hardware
