Working with S-Functions in MATLAB


S-Functions are custom Simulink blocks that allow you to add your own functionality to Simulink models. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of working with S-Functions in MATLAB. We'll cover the theory, key concepts, and provide sample code and examples.

Getting Started

To begin working with S-Functions in MATLAB, you'll need to have both MATLAB and Simulink installed. Here's how to get started:

% Example: Installing and launching MATLAB and Simulink
