matlab.system.mixin.SampleTime class

Control sample time for System objects in Simulink


matlab.system.mixin.SampleTime specifies the sample time specifications for a System object™ when it is included in a MATLAB System block. Inherit from this mixin class and use its methods to control the sample time of your System object in Simulink®, via the MATLAB System block.

With this mixin, you can:

  • Specify the sample time type

  • Specify the sample time

  • Customize the sample time with offsets and tick times

  • Get the current simulation time

System objects that inherit from this mixin class must also inherit from matlab.System. For example:

classdef MySystemObject < matlab.System & matlab.system.mixin.SampleTime

The matlab.system.mixin.SampleTime class is a handle class.
