  • The Device vendor and Device type fields share the command-line parameter ProdHWDeviceType. When specifying this parameter at the command line, separate the device vendor and device type values by using the characters ->. For example: 'Intel->x86-64 (Linux 64)'.

  • If you have a Simulink® Coder™ license and you want to add Device vendor and Device type values to the default set, see Register New Hardware Devices (Simulink Coder).


The Device vendor and Device type parameter values reflect available device support for the selected hardware board.
