Simulink Real-Time Basics (Part 2): System Configuration (Target Machine)


In a typical configuration, the Speedgoat real-time target machine is usually connected to a development computer (also known as Host PC), from which the real-time application running on the target machine is controlled. For these components to work together flawlessly, both must be properly configured. 

In this tutorial, we focus on the configuration of the Speedgoat target machine. Therefore, we discuss settings that should be paid attention to, and how to change them. Operating principles and modes of Speedgoat target machines will also be discussed. 


Part 1: System Configuration (Host PC)
Part 2: System Configuration (Target Machine)
Part 3: Creating and Running Real-Time Applications
Part 4: Logging Data
Part 5: Control and Instrumentation


  • Understand the operating principles of real-time target machines 
  • Learn how to configure your target machine 
  • Create and transfer a Simulink Real-Time™ kernel 

Product Focus:


Note: In case your target machine was previously configured for MATLAB R2020a or earlier, a one-time software migration is necessary to make it compatible with MATLAB R2020b or later. For detailed instructions, please check out the Target Software Migration Tutorial Video.
