Using a thermal model of a house as an example, this article describes a method for communicating with other devices via TCP/IP. The method is based on using inexpensive TCP/IP-to-serial-conversion hardware. The real-time system is xPC Target, a bootable kernel that enables real-time execution of Simulink® models on a separate PC. The target computer is an x86 processor Intel®/AMD® standard PC that can use commercial off-the-shelf input/output interface cards.
