2020 Release Notes – FMI Toolbox 2.9

Modelon’s FMI Toolbox for MATLAB/Simulink supports all major workflows in control system development and system integration for virtual prototyping, from design and sizing to optimization and MIL/SIL/HIL validation & verification testing. The additional FMI Toolbox Coder Add-on provides extensive support enabling users to export FMUs from Simulink and import FMUs to a Simulink Coder target.

Modelon’s FMI Toolbox for MATLAB/Simulink Coder Add-on enables users to export FMUs from Simulink and import FMUs to a Simulink Coder target. Key capabilities and features related to the latest version of the FMI Toolbox Coder Add-on for Matlab/Simulink are below.

Main features

1.1.1 Import FMUs into Simulink

  • Integrate simulation models from more than 80 tools into your Simulink workflow
  • Simulink FMU block including a flexible and intuitive graphical interface to; set parameters, select block outputs, set simulation options, add icon, and create Simulink buses for inputs and outputs to manage FMUs with many signals
  • Automate workflow by accessing FMU block settings through scripting

1.1.2 Import FMUs into MATLAB Scripts

  • Scripting simulations of FMUs in Matlab via APIs
  • Intuitive interface that connects FMUs to MATLAB ode solvers
  • Create custom solutions for simulating and analyzing FMU models
  • Model Exchange FMU analysis functions, including linearization computing from input to output, steady-state computation, and design space exploration through DoE functions

1.1.3 Export Simulink Models to FMUs

  • Create Co-Simulation and Model Exchange FMUs from Simulink models
  • Structured variable names that reflect Simulink model hierarchy
  • Optionally hide all internal information for the protection of IP
  • Expose internal signals of the Simulink model in the exported FMU

1.1.4 Build FMUs to a Simulink Coder Target

  • Tested and endorsed by the dSPACE 1006 platform
  • Deploy FMUs with source code to HiL testing
  • Compile FMU block in Simulink for real-time platforms using Simulink Coder
  • Supported by target platforms in which the compiler supports C-code S-functions and is compatible with the FMU source code

Main Changes

  • Model reference export with CS
  • ModelOperatingPoint compliance
  • Bus object export on ports
  • Ubuntu 18.04 support
    • Ubuntu 14.04 support dropped
  • Matlab 2015b and earlier support dropped
    • This means 32 bit FMU export + import support is now dropped
