After you develop your application using 5G Toolbox™, you can generate portable C/C++ source code, standalone executables, or standalone applications from your MATLAB® code. With code generation, you can:
Run your simulation on machines that do not have MATLAB installed.
Speed up processing while you work in the MATLAB environment.
Incorporate your algorithms into legacy code.
The following table compares deployment characteristics of MATLAB Compiler™ and MATLAB Coder™. Use this table to decide how to deploy your MATLAB code.
|Deployment Characteristic||Using MATLAB Compiler||Using MATLAB Coder|
|Output||Nonreadable shared libraries||Portable and readable C source code|
|Library dependency||MATLAB Runtime|
|Supported platforms for deployment||Windows®, Mac, and Linux®||Any platform that supports ANSI®/ISO® C/C++ code|
|Intellectual property protection||Packaged code is encrypted||Code is not encrypted. You can protect your IP by generating shared libraries instead of readable code|
|Algorithm acceleration||Same speed as MATLAB||Potentially faster, depending on the algorithm|
|MATLAB graphics||Supported||Not supported|
Introduces code generation support.
