    Create and Add Custom Computation Method

    To add a new computation method to the ASAP2 file, create a custom computation method.

    CompuMethod_CM1 = coder.asap2.CompuMethod;
    CompuMethod_CM1.Name = 'CompuMethod_1';
    CompuMethod_CM1.ConversionType = 'LINEAR';
    CompuMethod_CM1.Coefficients = [2 3];
    CompuMethod_CM1.LongIdentifier = 'longIdentifierTest';
    CompuMethod_CM1.Format = '%2.3';
    CompuMethod_CM1.Units = 's';

    Add the custom computation method to the ECU description object.

    add(descObj,CompuMethod_CM1);

    Get the properties of the newly added computation method.

    get(descObj,"CompuMethod","CompuMethod_1")
    ans = 
      CompuMethod with properties:
    
                   Name: 'CompuMethod_1'
         LongIdentifier: 'longIdentifierTest'
                 Format: '%2.3'
                  Units: 's'
           Coefficients: [2 3]
         ConversionType: 'LINEAR'
        CompuVTabValues: [1x1 struct]
             CustomData: ""
    
    

    To modify a property of the computation method, use set function. Update the LongIdentifier field of the computation method.

    set(descObj,"CompuMethod","CompuMethod_1",LongIdentifier="longIdentifierCM1")

    Generate the ASAP2 file using the updated ECU description object and verify that the ASAP2 file contains the computation method CompuMethod_1.

    coder.asap2.export("ASAP2Demo",CustomEcuDescriptions=descObj);
    Following Characteristics or Measurements with unsupported data types are not exported in ASAP2 file. "ASAP2Demo_DW.ASAP2DemoModelRef_InstanceData"

    Remove the newly added computation method from the description object.

    delete(descObj,"CompuMethod","CompuMethod_1");

    Create and Add Custom Characteristic

    To add a new characteristic to the ASAP2 file, create a custom characteristic.

    Parameter_1 = coder.asap2.Characteristic;
    Parameter_1.Name = 'Custom_parameter1';

    Remove the newly added characteristic from the description object.

    delete(descObj,"Characteristic","Custom_parameter1");

    Create and Add Custom Measurement

    Signal_1 = coder.asap2.Measurement;
    Signal_1.Name = 'Custom_signal1';
    Signal_1.LongIdentifier = 'longIdentifierSignal';
    Signal_1.UpperLimit = 255;
