8
Enhancements To Release 11 Products
New Features
Version 3.1 of the DSP Blockset offers several new blocks, as well as
substantial optimization for existing multirate blocks. The following
sections summarize the new additions.
See Chapter 1 of the online DSP Blockset User’s Guide for an overview of
the blockset’s contents. Also see the DSP Blockset readme file for a
complete listing of the changes. To view the readme file, at the MATLAB
command line type
info dspblks
Library Structure
The library structure has undergone further refinement for Version 3.1
with the addition of a Quantizers library in General DSP. The new
library contains blocks for quantization and coding.
Low Latency for Multirate Blocks
Multirate blocks, such as the buffering and rate conversion blocks, are
now optimized to produce the smallest possible delays under Simulink’s
single-tasking mode. The blocks that benefit from this change are:
• Buffer
• Downsample
• Dyadic Analysis
• Dyadic Synthesis
• FIR Decimation
• FIR Interpolation
• FIR Rate Conversion
• Overlap-Add FFT Filter
• Overlap-Save FFT Filter
• Rebuffer
• Repeat
• Unbuffer
• Upsample
• Wavelet Analysis
9
New Features
• Wavelet Synthesis
Some of these blocks now have zero delay in single-tasking mode. See
“Delay and Latency” in the online DSP Blockset User’s Guide for
complete information.
Note As a result of the reduced delay, models that use the blocks listed
above may perform differently with DSP Blockset 3.1 than they did with
DSP Blockset 3.0. Consult the Version 3.1 DSP Block Reference for the
delay characteristics of particular blocks. In cases where an existing
model relies on the suboptimal delay of 3.0 blocks to produce correct
results, you may want to preserve the current behavior. Consult the
Knowledge Base at the MathWorks Support Web site for information
(search for “latency”).

Products Introduced Between Release 11 and Release 11.1
Products Introduced Between Release 11 and Release 11.1
This section briefly describes products that were released (via the Web)
after Release 11, but before Release 11.1. Those products include:
• MATLABC/C++ Graphics Library
• Data AcquisitionToolbox
• GARCH Toolbox
MATLAB C/C++ Graphics Library
The MATLAB C/C++ Graphics Library is a collection of more than 100
MATLAB graphics routines distributed as a single library. The graphics
library makes the visualization and GUI-building routines of MATLAB
available to stand-alone C and C++ applications.
A stand-alone C or C++ application is an executable program that can
run independently of the MATLAB interpreted environment.
Stand-alone applications are a convenient way to package and distribute
a customized MATLAB application.
Using this library, in conjunction with the MATLAB Compiler and the
MATLAB C/C++ Math Library, you can create stand-alone applications
from M-files that use lines, text, meshes, and polygons as well as
interactive GUI components such as menus, push buttons, and dialog
boxes.
Note You must use the MATLAB Compiler to create C or C++
stand-alone graphics applications. Calling MATLAB C/C++ Graphics
Library routines directly from a C or C++ source module is not
supported.
15
New Features
The Data Acquisition Toolbox
The Data Acquisition Toolbox is a collection of M-file functions and
MEX-file dynamic link libraries (DLL’s) built on the MATLAB technical
computing environment. The toolbox provides:
• A framework for bringing live, measured data into MATLAB
• Support for analog input, analog output, and digital I/O subsystems
• Single- and multichannel acquisitions
• A consistent and flexible command line interface that exposes the
unique features of all supported hardware
The supported hardware and major toolbox features are described below.
Supported Hardware
The toolbox supports these hardware devices:
• National Instruments Data Acquisition E-Series and 1200-Series
boards
• Hewlett-Packard Company VXI E1432/33/34-Series hardware
• Microsoft Windows multimedia sound cards
• Additional third-party hardware
You can view a complete list of all supported hardware devices at
http://www.mathworks.com/products/daq/hardware.shtml
Toolbox Features
Object Based Design. Based on MATLAB's object technology, the toolbox
provides functions for creating device objects directly associated with
your hardware. Device objects provide a gateway to all of the hardware's
functionality and allow you to control the behavior of your acquisition.
You can create device objects for analog input, analog output, and digital
I/O subsystems. For example, an analog input object created in MATLAB
contains all the necessary parameters for executing any supported
analog input task.
16
Products Introduced Between Release 11 and Release 11.1
Data Management. Functions are provided for previewing and extracting
your data for analysis. The toolbox streams data into MATLAB in double
precision floating-point format or native hardware format. This gives you
the ability to work with the data just as you would any other matrix in
MATLAB.
Data Logging. Functions are available for logging data to disk, memory, or
both while an analog input object is running.
Events and Actions. In general, data acquisition tasks are initiated based
on events. An event occurs at a specific time after a condition is met.
Some of the event types supported by the Data Acquisition Toolbox
include: start and stop events, triggers, number of samples acquired,
number of samples output, and errors.
Events may result in one or more actions. For example, all the event
types mentioned above have the action of calling an associated property,
which in turn can execute an M-file function that you specify.
Error Handling. A consistent set of error and warning messages are sent
back to the MATLAB workspace by the toolbox when an error is
encountered. If a hardware error message is encountered that is not
handled by the toolbox, an “external error” is reported along with the
vendor-specific hardware error message.
Conversion to Engineering Units. The toolbox automatically converts
acquired data into values that represent specific engineering units (e.g.,
volts, Newtons, etc.). Use of linear scaling and offsets is supported
directly by the toolbox. In addition, any nonlinear calibration curve may
be applied using MATLAB. You can set engineering unit conversions for
each channel of data.
Acquisition Status Evaluation. You can evaluate the status of your acquisition
and the available data acquisition resources at any time using functions
provided by the toolbox. Data acquisition resources include installed
hardware, hardware drivers, and hardware driver adaptors.
17
New Features
GARCH Toolbox
The GARCH Toolbox provides essential tools for univariate Generalized
Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (GARCH) volatility
modeling of economic time series. It uses a general ARMAX/ GARCH
composite model to perform simulation, forecasting, and parameter
estimation of financial time series in the presence of conditional
heteroskedasticity.
18
Products Introduced in Release 11.1
Products Introduced in Release 11.1
This section briefly describes products that are being introduced with
Release 11.1. Those products are:
• Dials & Gauges Blockset
• Financial Time Series Toolbox
• Quantized Filtering Toolbox
• xPC Target
Dials & Gauges Blockset
The Dials & Gauges Blockset supplies realistic, instrument-like user
interface controls for Simulink blocks. With this model-based
instrumentation, you can add graphical instruments directly to your
model, using them as you would use blocks from the Sources and Sinks
libraries. The instrumentation is based on ActiveX technology and is
available on Microsoft Windows platforms.
Financial Time Series Toolbox
The MATLAB Financial Time Series Toolbox contains a collection of
tools for the analysis of time series data in the financial markets.
The toolbox extends the capabilities of MATLAB by providing a
date-aware time series object. The object simplifies the manipulation,
cleanup, and preparation of financial data, so that finance professionals
can take full advantage of MATLAB’s graphics, built-in numerics, and
special-purpose toolboxes.
Quantized Filtering Analysis Toolbox
The Quantized Filtering Toolbox is a new product for filtering and
bit-true analysis using fixed-point or custom-precision floating-point
arithmetic for a wide range of precisions.

New Features
You can use this toolbox to:
• Construct quantized filters
• Analyze the responses of quantized filters
• Filter data
Relationship To Other Products
The Quantized Filtering Toolbox is built on top of the MATLAB
computing environment and the Signal Processing Toolbox. You must
have the Signal Processing Toolbox in order to use it.
xPC Target and xPC Target Embedded Option
xPC Target and its add-on product xPC Target Embedded Option are
products from The MathWorks for use with Real-Time Workshop®. It is
a host-target PC solution for prototyping, testing, and deploying
real-time systems. In this environment you use your desktop PC as a host
computer with MATLAB, Simulink, and Real-Time Workshop to create
models, run simulations, and generate code. You then use a second
PC-compatible system as a target computer where the generated code
runs in real time.
The target PC can be:
• A desktop PC
• An industrial PC, including PC/104, CompactPCI, and single board
computers
The major features of the xPC Target software are the ability to:
• Design and build the target application on a host PC.
• Execute and control the target application on a target PC with signal
monitoring and parameter tuning.
• Use inexpensive hardware for the target computer and I/O boards.
• Deploy real-time systems with the add-on product xPC Embedded
Option.

Products Introduced in Release 11.1
Note xPC Target requires a host PC, target PC, and either the Watcom
C/C++ compiler or Microsoft Visual C/C++ compiler. For I/O, your target
PC must also have I/O boards supported by xPC Target.
