Create Signal Data for Simulation

Create input data to load into a model as simulation input

Create input data to load into a model as simulation input. You can create signal data in the MATLAB® workspace or use the Signal Editor block.


Signal EditorDisplay, create, edit, and switch interchangeable scenarios
