Add signal interface element
Add an interface
'newSignal' to the interface
dictionary of the model, and add an element
'newElement' with type
arch = systemcomposer.createModel('newModel',true); interface = addInterface(arch.InterfaceDictionary,'newSignal'); element = addElement(interface,'newElement','Type','double')
element = SignalElement with properties: Interface: [1×1 systemcomposer.interface.SignalInterface] Name: 'newElement' Type: 'double' Dimensions: '1' Units: '' Complexity: 'real' Minimum: '' Maximum: '' Description: '' UUID: '2b47eaa6-191a-439a-ba2b-2bcc3209b912' ExternalUID: ''
interface— New interface object
New interface object, specified as a
name— Name of new element
Name of new element with a valid variable name, specified as a character vector.
comma-separated pairs of
the argument name and
Value is the corresponding value.
Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value
pair arguments in any order as
'Type'— Data type of element
Data type of element, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of
'Type' and a valid data type character vector.
'Dimensions'— Dimensions of element
Dimensions of element, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of
'Dimensions' and a positive integer array. Each element of the
array is the size of the element in the corresponding direction. A scalar integer
indicates a scalar or vector element and a row vector with two integers indicates a
'Complexity'— Complexity of element
Complexity of element, specified as the comma-separated pair
'real' if the element is
purely real, or
'complex' if an imaginary part is allowed.
|interface||An interface defines the kind of information that flows through a port. The same interface can be assigned to multiple ports. An interface can be composite, meaning that it can include elements that describe the properties of an interface signal.||Interfaces represent the information that is shared through a connector and enters or exits a component through a port. Use the Interface Editor to create and manage interfaces and interface elements and store them in an interface data dictionary for reuse between models.||Define Interfaces|
|interface element||An interface element describes a portion of an interface, such as a communication message, a calculated or measured parameter, or other decomposition of that interface.|
Interface elements describe the decompositions of an interface:
|Assign Interfaces to Ports|
|interface dictionary||An interface data dictionary is a consolidated list of all the interfaces in an architecture and where they are used. Local interfaces on a System Composer™ model can be saved in an interface data dictionary using the Interface Editor.||Interface dictionaries can be reused between models that need to use a given set of interfaces and interface elements. Data dictionaries are stored in separate |
|adapter||An adapter helps connect two components with incompatible port interfaces by mapping between the two interfaces. An adapter can also act as a unit delay or rate transition.|
With an adapter, you can perform three functions on the Interface Adapter dialog:
