Adding Complex Structure Capabilities to Simulink

The StructureLib toolbox from Podium Technology extends the capabilities of MATLAB®/Simulink® by adding the ability to handle multi-data typed structures and bitwords that can be nested to any depth.
Principle uses for this are to integrate models with existing functionality or simplify the path between user S-Functions.
The user is able to define the structures; each member can be any standard Simulink data type or could reference another structure definition to give a multi-levelled structure. Each member can be also be given dimensions to make it into a vector or matrix. StructureLib also supports bitword structures where bits or collections of bits can be collated into an integer.
The following blocks are supplied:

  • StructMux: Creates a structure type from its primitive elements - e.g. to feed a user S-Function.
  • StructDemux: Breaks out a structure into its primitive parts - e.g. to decode the output from S-Functions.
  • StructPicker: Pick out individual members, used instead of StructDemux when only one member is required.
  • StructPoker: Inserts individual members into a structure.
  • Struct Store Memory: Defines memory storage for saving structures to.
  • Struct Store Read: Reads the whole structure, sub structures or structure elements from the structure store.
  • Struct Store Write: Writes the whole structure, sub structures or structure elements to the structure store.
  • Bitword DTC: Writes the whole structure, sub structures or structure elements to the structure store.

Structure definitions are driven from a single source, either m-scripts where the ‘C’ header file is generated for creating S-Functions, alternatively, descriptions for Simulink can be driven from ‘C’ header files using the parser provided.
StructureLib is available for MATLAB (32-bit and 64-bit) R2008b through to R2015b.
