Virtual connection between circuit envelope ports
RF Blockset / Circuit Envelope / Utilities
Simscape / Utilities
The Connection Label block lets you specify virtual connections between circuit envelope ports, similar to the Goto and From blocks in Simulink® diagrams. These connection lines are nondirectional, which means that all sides of the virtual connection use the same type of block.
Virtual connectivity is established by the label name. If two or more Connection Label blocks in a model subsystem have the same label, then the circuit envelope ports of other blocks connected to them behave as though they were physically connected. Virtual connections cannot cross subsystem boundaries. The label name is displayed next to the block icon on the model canvas.
You specify the label name by using the Label parameter.
Use the Connection Label block to reduce diagram clutter by breaking off tangled connection lines.
You can select a Connection Label block to highlight blocks related to it. To show a related block in an open diagram or new tab, pause on the ellipsis. Then, select Related Blocks from the action bar. When multiple blocks correspond to the selected block, a list of related blocks opens. You can filter the list of related blocks by entering a search term in the text box. After you select a related block from the list, window focus changes to the open diagram or new tab that shows the related block.
Port_1 — Connection port
untyped circuit envelope port
Circuit envelope connection port. By default, this port is untyped.
You define the port type by connecting this port to a circuit envelope port of another block in the subsystem. Once you establish a connection, other Connection Label blocks that are in the same subsystem and have the same label can be connected only to the same type of port.
Label — Name of connection label
Label1 (default) | character vector | string
Label name, which establishes the virtual connection. If two or more Connection Label blocks in the same subsystem of a model have the same label, then the circuit envelope ports of the blocks connected to them behave as though they are physically connected.
The value of this parameter appears as a label next to the block icon on the model canvas.
