A System Composer architecture represents a system of components and how they interface with each other structurally and behaviorally. You can represent specific architectures using alternate views.
Different types of architectures describe different aspects of systems:
|Compose Architecture Visually|
A System Composer model is the file that contains architectural information, including components, ports, connectors, interfaces, and behaviors.
Perform operations on a model:
A System Composer model is stored as an SLX file.
|Create Architecture Model with Interfaces and Requirement Links|
A component is a nontrivial, nearly independent, and replaceable part of a system that fulfills a clear function in the context of an architecture. A component defines an architectural element, such as a function, a system, hardware, software, or other conceptual entity. A component can also be a subsystem or subfunction.
Represented as a block, a component is a part of an architecture model that can be separated into reusable artifacts.
A port is a node on a component or architecture that represents a point of interaction with its environment. A port permits the flow of information to and from other components or systems.
There are different types of ports:
Connectors are lines that provide connections between ports. Connectors describe how information flows between components or architectures.
A connector allows two components to interact without defining the nature of the interaction. Set an interface on a port to define how the components interact.
