The Model Interface Toolkit provides the Model Interface VIs, which you use to run and interact with models. However, this toolkit does not provide support for compiling models that are compatible with the toolkit. The following free components, available on the same NI VeriStand DVD from which you install the Model Interface Toolkit, install support for compiling compatible models:

  • NI VeriStand Model Framework—Provides tools for compiling models designed in C/C++ or third-party modeling environments, such as The MathWorks, Inc. Simulink® software.
  • LabVIEW Model Support—Provides a tool for generating models from LabVIEW VIs.
Note  If you install only the Model Interface Toolkit and not these components, environments like LabVIEW and the Simulink software do not support compiling compatible models.

NI VeriStand Model Framework

The NI VeriStand The Model Framework provides tools for compiling models created in third-party modeling environments and for designing custom models in C/C++. When you run your test application, designed using the Model Interface Toolkit, the application executes functions defined in NI VeriStand Model Framework files. These functions then call functions in your model code to execute the model.

Finding the Model Framework Files and Documentation

The NI VeriStand installer installs the Model Framework files and documentation at RootDrive:\VeriStand\xxxx\ModelInterface\, where RootDrive is the drive where NI software installs and xxxx is the NI VeriStand version number. If you cannot locate the files at that location, run the NI VeriStand installer again and select the NI VeriStand Model Framework item from the list of features to install. You do not need to reinstall other NI software to install the Model Framework.
