External Mode

Communication interface

Select the transport layer External mode uses to exchange data between the host computer and the target hardware.

Settings

Default:TCP/IP, XCP on TCP/IP

Run external mode in a background thread

Force the external mode engine in the generated code to execute in a background task.

This option is not recommended for models that use a very small time step, or which may encounter task overruns. These situations can cause Simulink® to become unresponsive.

Settings

Default:disabled

IP Address

Enter the IP address of the target hardware. By default, this value is an environment variable, $(SOCFPGA_IPADDRESS), which reuses the IP address from the most recent connection to the target hardware.

Settings

Default: $(SOCFPGA_IPADDRESS)

Port

Set the value of the TCP/IP port number, from 1024 to 65535. External mode uses this IP port for communication between the target hardware and host computer.

Settings

Default: 17725

Verbose

Select this check box to view the external mode execution progress and updates in the Diagnostic Viewer or in the MATLAB® command window.

Settings

Default: disabled
