View Simulation Results

Connect signals to a scope or scope viewer to prototype, validate, and debug your Simulink® model

Scope blocks and scope viewers offer a quick way to visualize simulation data over time. If you are prototyping a model, connect signals to a Scope block, simulate the model, and then view the results in a scope window. Use the results to validate your design. If you need to debug your model, use oscilloscope-like tools (triggers and cursor measurements) available with a scope to locate the problem. To learn more, see Prototype and Debug Models with Scopes.
