Modeling Function Variants in TargetLink®

In practical Simulink/TargetLink projects one often has to model functional variants, i.e. different realizations for certain features that can be switched. Function variants may be needed to support optional functionality or different vehicle configurations.
Binding of variants can be realized during code generation, during compilation, or at runtime. If binding takes place during code generation, variant-specific code is generated. Binding of variants at compile time can be realized by pre-processor definitions in the code. For binding of variants at runtime calibration variables can be used.

This application note describes methods and techniques to realize function variants with TargetLink. It also gives background information about related TargetLink principles as well as hints and suggestions to overcome common problems. Demo models for the TargetLink versions TargetLink 2.3.1 and TargetLink 3.0.1 (in combination with The MathWorks Release R2007b or newer) are included as examples.
