Simulink Desktop Real-Time

Run Simulink models in real time on your computer

Simulink® Desktop Real-Time™ provides a real-time kernel for executing Simulink models on a Windows® or Mac laptop or desktop. It includes library blocks that connect to a range of I/O devices. You can create and tune a real-time system for rapid prototyping or hardware-in-the-loop simulation with your computer.

Simulink Desktop Real-Time supports real-time performance with lower sample rate for Connected IO mode simulation in Simulink, and supports higher sample rates for Run in Kernel mode simulation in Simulink with Simulink Coder™.
