target.Processor class

Package: target

Provide target processor information

Description

Use the target.Processor class to provide information about your target processor. For example, name, manufacturer, and language implementation.

To create a target.Processor object, use the target.create function.

Properties

The object identifier is the hyphenated combination of the Manufacturer and Name property values. If the Manufacturer property is empty, the object identifier is the Name property value.

Examples

Create Timer Object

This example shows how you can create a timer object for your development computer.

Create the function signature for a timer. In this example, the function returns a uint64 data type and the function name timestamp_x86.

timerSignature = target.create('Function');
timerSignature.Name = 'timestamp_x86';
timerSignature.ReturnType = 'uint64';

Capture the function in an API object.

timerApi = target.create('API');
timerApi.Functions = timerSignature;
timerApi.Language = target.Language.C;
timerApi.Name = 'Linux Timer API';

Capture the dependencies of the function, that is, the source and header files that are required to run the function.

timerDependencies = target.create('BuildDependencies');
timerDependencies.IncludeFiles = {'host_timer_x86.h'};
timerDependencies.IncludePaths = {'$(MATLAB_ROOT)...
                                  /toolbox/coder/profile/src'};
timerDependencies.SourceFiles = {'host_timer_x86.c'};

Create an object that combines the API and dependencies.

timerImplementation = target.create('APIImplementation');
timerImplementation.API = timerApi;
timerImplementation.BuildDependencies = timerDependencies;
timerImplementation.Name = 'Linux Timer Implementation';

Create the timer object and associate it with the timer information.

timer = target.create('Timer');
timer.APIImplementation = timerImplementation;
timer.Name = 'Linux Timer';

Assign the timer and add-ons to the processor object.

processor = target.get('Processor', 'Intel-x86-64 (Linux 64)');
processor.Timers = timer;
