Communication

Summary of the Communication components available in Schematic Editor.

This page highlights the dedicated subset of Communication components which are available through the Library Explorer in Schematic Editor. These components allow you to configure and accept inputs into your model during run-time from a software or device using the specified protocol. Their descriptions and supported features are given in Table 1.

Note: Many of the featured components are only available with the Communication Toolbox Package. Please refer to our Typhoon HIL Toolboxes page for more information.
