Rapid Accelerator Limitations

Rapid Accelerator Mode

The rapid accelerator mode creates a Rapid Accelerator standalone executable from your model. This executable includes the solver and model methods, but it resides outside of MATLAB® and Simulink®. It uses external mode to communicate with Simulink.

MATLAB and Simulink run in one process, and if a second processing core is available, the standalone executable runs there.

Rapid Accelerator Mode Limitations

  • Rapid Accelerator mode does not support:

    • Algebraic loops.

    • Targets written in C++.

    • Interpreted MATLAB Function blocks.

    • Noninlined MATLAB language or Fortran S-functions. You must write S-functions in C or inline them using the Target Language Compiler (TLC) or you can also use the MEX file. For more information, see .

    • Debugger or Profiler.

    • Run time objects for Simulink.RunTimeBlock and Simulink.BlockCompOutputPortData blocks.

  • Model parameters must be one of these data types:

    • boolean

    • uint8 or int8

    • uint16 or int16

    • uint32 or int32

    • single or double

    • Fixed-point

    • Enumerated

  • You cannot pause a simulation in Rapid Accelerator mode.

  • If a Rapid Accelerator build includes referenced models (by using Model blocks), set up these models to use fixed-step solvers to generate code for them. The top model, however, can use a variable-step solver as long as the blocks in the referenced models are discrete.

  • In certain cases, changing block parameters can result in structural changes to your model that change the model checksum. An example of such a change is changing the number of delays in a DSP simulation. In these cases, you must regenerate the code for the model. See for more information.

  • For root inports, Rapid Accelerator mode supports only base as the Srcworkspace.

  • For root inports, when you specify the minimum and maximum values that the block should output, Rapid Accelerator mode does not recognize these limits during simulation.

  • In Rapid Accelerator mode, To File or To Workspace blocks inside function-call subsystems do not generate any logging files if the function-call port is connected to Ground or unconnected.
