Real-Time Interface (RTI) is a blockset for Simulink®/Stateflow that provides access to the I/O on dSPACE hardware. Each I/O-signal that goes to or from the hardware is connected to a block from the RTI library. RTI acts as an add-on to Simulink Coder™, and when C-code is generated from the model it can easily be executed on a real-time platform, where the I/O is specified according to the RTI blocks. Each I/O block has an interface where channels and parameterization can be configured.
In addition to granting access to I/O channels, RTI also contains blocksets for communication protocols such as CAN, FlexRay, LIN and SPI to name a few. It works for continuous, discrete and multirate systems. This means that RTI can be used for models in all development stages, from Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) to Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL).
The generated code is high-quality, and the user does not require any deep knowledge about programming or code structure. This means that a functions developer in Simulink®/Stateflow does not need any programming knowledge to run or evaluate their model on real hardware.Ask a question Read more at dSPACE
