Stand Alone mode, you can create control, DSP, and other
system models for use in production systems running on
target computers. Typically these
production systems are manufactured in low to moderate quantities.
Stand Alone mode, you can start the kernel and run the
real-time application on the
target computer, independent of
the development computer. You can configure a
target computer to start executing
your real-time application
automatically for continuous operation each time the system is started. If the
target computer has a keyboard,
you can control the real-time
application using the
target computer command-line
interface. You can create custom interfaces with the
Real-Time™ C and .NET APIs and run them on Microsoft®
Windows® development computers, without installing MATLAB® software.
Stand Alone mode does not require a connection between
the development and target
Use this mode to load the target
computer with both the
Real-Time kernel and a real-time
application. This mode of
operation can start the kernel on the
target computer from a flash disk
or hard disk. After starting the kernel on the
Stand Alone mode also automatically starts the real-time
application that you loaded with
Stand Alone mode eliminates the need for a
development computer and allows you to run real-time
Regardless of the mode, you initially start your target computer with DOS from a boot device. DOS starts the Simulink Real-Time kernel. After the Simulink Real-Time kernel starts, DOS is not available on the target computer. To make DOS available, you must restart the target computer with DOS without starting the Simulink Real-Time kernel.
Simulink Real-Time standalone mode requires a boot device with DOS installed as provided on all Speedgoat target machines. Otherwise, it does not have specific requirements as to the type of boot device. DOS software and license are not included with Simulink Real-Time. If DOS is not installed, first start the target computer from a kernel boot disk or network boot image. Then, download and run the real-time application.
If you use the target computer in a small or rugged environment, standalone mode is an option if the target computer does not support network boot from the development computer.
If you want to view signals on the
target computer in
Stand Alone mode, you must provide a monitor for the
target computer. Before building
the real-time application, you
must also add real-time Scope blocks of types
If you do not want to view signals on the target computer, you can run your Simulink Real-Time system as a black box without a monitor or keyboard. Standalone real-time applications are automatically set to continue running for an infinite time or until the target computer is turned off.
