In Model-Based Design, a system model is at the center of the development process, from requirements development, through design, implementation, and testing.
Model-Based Design is transforming the way engineers and scientists work by moving design tasks from the lab and field to the desktop.
When software and hardware implementation requirements are included, such as fixed-point and timing behavior, you can automatically generate code for embedded deployment and create test benches for system verification, saving time and avoiding the introduction of manually coded errors.
Model-Based Design starts very simply – by visually modeling your control system and simulating it on the desktop. Small workgroups use Simulink in this way to dramatically improve their design and development efficiency. It’s easy to get started with a free trial of Simulink.
