The NXP's Model-Based Design Toolbox is a quick solution for testing and rapid prototyping applications on top of NXP MCUs.
It provides an integrated development environment and tool chain support for configuring and generating applications (including initialization routines and device drivers) to execute complex applications (e.g.: motor control algorithms, communication protocols CAN, SPI, I2C, UART, FlexIO and sensor based applications).
This toolbox includes integrated Simulink embedded target for NXP S32K1xx MCUs, peripheral device blocks and drivers, the Math and Motor Control Library, GCC compiler and additional tools for debugging and real time data visualization . It provides built-in support for Software and Processor-in-the-Loop (SIL and PIL) simulations to enable fast prototyping, verification and validation on the real target for the algorithms developed in MATLAB environment.

Thanks for your the feedback.
In regards with the PWM Dithering, we will consider such feature for the future releases.
Nonetheless, if you need such functionality now, you have 2 options:
#1: use the MBDT Simulink Write & Read Register Blocks to write directly the appropriate PWM registers that controls the dithering functions. You can find these blocks in the S32K1xx Core, System, Peripherals and Utilites/Utility Blocks Simulink Library
#2: use Simulink Custom Code Blocks to call the NXP SDK dedicated function
FTM_DRV_UpdatePwmPeriodDither(uint32_t instance, uint8_t newModFracVal, bool softwareTrigger). The function implementation can be found in \src\S32_Platform_SDK\platform\drivers\src\ftm\
Please add PWM dithering support. Great job!
There're not so many things to change to have it running on S32K in order to create a tutorial.
There is a small chapter 4.1 in the Release Notes documents. You can find it in the help folder of the toolbox.
Here is a thread on NXP community that might be helpful: https://community.nxp.com/message/1164457
Hope this helps!
Dear NXP Team,
is there a tutorial on how to configure the model to run it in external mode?
The S32K118 and S32K116 support will be added on the next release of this toolbox - targeted for July 22nd
You will get the same capabilities as for the currently supported S32K14x derivatives, plus a few new features requested by users like you in the past year. Stay tuned ... soon you will have it :-)
Hi ,Dear NXP Model based design toolbox team,why the most examples don't support S32K118?
very good !!!
Please run the NXP_Support_Package_S32K1xx.m and NOT the *.fig file.
Or evem simpler, once you have the toolbox installed as Add-on, you can simply type in Matlab command window the command: NXP_Support_Package_S32K1xx
This will start the installer correctly.
Let us know if this works for you.
Dear NXP Model based design toolbox team,
Please go through this link.
I have posted the issue on NXP website with clear description and images are attached to the same to make it more clear.
Please resolve the same ASAP.
In regards with your comment (for some unknown reason your message is not listed here):
"I followed all steps given in the video to install support package from add on.
I successfully downloaded the "MBDToolbox_S32K1xx_2018.R1_20180723" but when i tried to install it by clicking on "Install MTLBX file as add on", it gives following error in command window.
Dot indexing is not supported for variables of this type."
ANS: You need to pay attention when you download the MLTBX file. Depending on the browser used, the file might get corrupted during download and save in your PC as a zip file.
To avoid such behavior, it is advisable to use checkbox near the MLTBX file you wish to download and use the "Download Selected Files" button to start the download. That should eliminate potential file corruption.
Let us know if this works for you.
@gang cheng, please watch the toolbox installation tutorial here: https://community.nxp.com/videos/7974 and if the problem persists, start a thread on the NXP's community.
NXP has a very good community support for this tool: https://community.nxp.com/community/mbdt
Many real examples supported by videos and sample code are available in the community along with two courses on PMSM (https://community.nxp.com/thread/464336) and BLDC (https://community.nxp.com/thread/450817) control.
How could I install the toolbox with Matlab2017b?
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
Are you interested in PMSM control system topics ? We have started a workshop that explains how to prototype the entire application directly from MATLAB/Simulink on a 3-Phase PMSM with NXP's S32K platform.
The workshop material can be found here: https://community.nxp.com/thread/464336
BLDC Closed Loop Speed Control example with NXP S32K144, MotorGD and MATLAB Simulink.
It demonstrate how to:
- read the speed request from ADC or online via FreeMASTER
- read hall sensors based on GPIO interrupt
- PI speed controller
- Speed Estimator based on Hall Sensors transitions
- Commutation table
- Generate C code
- Build the C with GCC and Download to the target
Check this short video to see how easy it is with Model-Based Design Toolbox from NXP: https://community.nxp.com/videos/7971
