Create Signal Data for Simulation

Create input data to load into a model as simulation input

Create input data to load into a model as simulation input. You can create signal data in the MATLAB® workspace or using the Signal Editor block.


Signal EditorDisplay, create, edit, and switch interchangeable scenarios
Signal BuilderCreate and generate interchangeable groups of signals whose waveforms are piecewise linear

Classes data in format used by base workspace class for file type readers for Simulink interfaces such as Signal Editor data in MAT-file format data in format used by model workspace objects from different name space spreadsheet in format used by Signal Builder


Create and Edit Signal Data

Use the Signal Editor to create and edit input signals that you can organize for root-level port mapping or multiple simulations.

Use Scenarios and Insert Signals in Signal Editor

Work with scenarios and signals in Signal Editor.

Work with Basic Signal Data

Basic operations such as signal and data creation.

Create Signals with MATLAB Expressions and Variables

Use MATLAB expressions to create signals in Signal Editor.

Create Freehand Signal Data Using Mouse or Multi-Touch Gestures

Create signal data with mouse and multi-touch gestures.

Import Custom File Type

Import custom file types to Signal Editor.

Create Custom File Type for Import to Signal Editor

To import custom file types to Signal Editor, create custom file type readers for your data.

Export Signals to Custom Registered File Types
