Model and simulate electronic and mechatronic systems.
Simscape Electronics™ provides component libraries for modeling and simulating electronic and mechatronic systems.
You can use these components to develop electromechanical actuators, evaluate analog circuit architectures, and analyze system behavior under various conditions. You model these systems by assembling the component models into a schematic. Then select the effects you wish to enable, assign parameter values, and you are ready to simulate.
You can verify the behavior of your system under non-ideal conditions by applying tolerances to parameter values and by introducing faults into your model.
Simscape Electronics includes many types of components such as semiconductors, motors, op-amps, logic gates, and passive devices. You can create custom component models with the MATLAB® based Simscape™ language.
You can integrate electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and other physical systems into your model using components from the Simscape family of products. Simscape offers a set of fundamental components in many physical domains, and it provides the technology for simulating and analyzing physical systems.
The Simscape add-on products provide additional models and analysis capabilities for applications such as electrical power networks, heating and cooling systems, and mechanical powertrains. You can integrate these with three-dimensional mechanical systems and analyze their behavior using an animation of the simulation results.
Simscape Electronics models can also be converted to C code. This enables them to support testing of embedded software in configurations such as processor-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop testing, which is much safer and more efficient than testing on hardware prototypes.
Simscape Electronics models integrate directly with block diagrams in Simulink, state machines in Stateflow®, and MATLAB functions. You can simulate your entire system in a single environment. This accelerates tasks such as designing control systems and optimizing system-level performance.
