I'm trying to create a 4x5 matrix containing a 1x3 structure in each of its cells but I can't get the result shown in the picture. I only managed to get a 9x1 structure.
position = {'corner';'edge';'corner';'edge';'inside';'edge';'corner';'edge';'corner'};
temperature = {25;25;25;25;50;25;25;25;25};
ic = {0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0};
PCB = [position, temperature ,ic]
Does anyone know how to create it? Thank you very much!

The data are available in fixed-size arrays as follows:
- position: (4x5)
- temperature: (4x5)
- ic: (4x5)

If the field values you pass into the struct function are a cell array, MATLAB will make a struct array the same size as the cell array. Each element of the struct will contain the data from the corresponding cell of the cell array.
A = {1 2 3; 4 5 6};
B = {'apple', 'banana', 'banana'; 'cherry', 'cherry', 'apple'};
S = struct('number', A, 'fruit', B);
T = S(2, 2) % T.number is 5, T.fruit is 'cherry'
See the second and third items in the Description section of the documentation page for the struct function for more information.
