MATLAB Language Subset for Code Generation

MATLAB Coder generates code from a subset of the MATLAB language typically used by design engineers for developing algorithms as components of larger systems. The supported subset includes more than 400 operators and functions from MATLAB.

A limited set of functions are supported for code generation from Aerospace Toolbox, Fixed-Point Designer™, Image Processing Toolbox™, Signal Processing Toolbox™ and Statistics Toolbox™. MATLAB Coder also supports code generation from many System objects™ found in the Communications System Toolbox™, Computer Vision System Toolbox™, DSP System Toolbox™, and Phased Array System Toolbox™.

MATLAB Coder supports a broad range of MATLAB language attributes to develop algorithms. These include:

Matrices and arrays, such as persistent variables, global variables, matrix operations, N-dimensional arrays, subscripting, and frames

Classes and data types, such as complex numbers, integer match, double/single precision, fixed-point arithmetic, characters, structures, numeric classes, and variable-sized data

Programming constructs, such as MATLAB program control statements (if, for, while, switch) and arithmetic, relational, and logical operators

Functions, such as function handles, sub-functions, the subset of MATLAB functions, variable length input and output argument lists, and the ability to call MATLAB functions
