ETAS Inca Limitations

For ETAS® Inca, the Simulink® Real-Time™ software does not support:

  • Starting and stopping the real-time application by using ETAS Inca commands.

    To start and stop the real-time application on the target computer, use the Simulink Real-Time start and stop commands, for example, start(tg), stop(tg).

  • ETAS Inca flash programming.

  • Multiple simultaneous ETAS Inca connections to a single target computer.

  • Tunability of parameters with ExportedGlobal storage class when the model has other parameters with PageSwitching storage class. As a work around you can:

    • Place all the parameters you want to tune in model workspace. Or

    • Change the default mapping for storage class from PageSwitching to default. The PageSwitching storage class is not used, and the page switching functionality is not available.

Event mode data acquisition has the following limitations:

  • Every piece of data that the Simulink Real-Time software adds to the event list slows the real-time application. The amount of data that you can observe depends on the model sample time and the speed of the target computer. It is possible to overload the target computer CPU to where data integrity is reduced.

  • You can trace only signals and scalar parameters. You cannot trace vector parameters.
