  1. Create a subsystem for the graph block.

    Note: In this particular design scenario only one graph code is imported. But in a case where we have multiple graphs imported and connected, Model Composer automatically generates the top module which includes interconnections of all blocks.
  2. Assign the subsystem name as graph_sub.
  3. Drag the Model Composer Hub block from the library browser or simply click on the canvas and start typing Model Composer Hub.

  4. Double-click the Model Composer Hub block and make changes as follows (Similar to those in Lab 1 - Import AIE kernel).

  5. The Simulation procedure is similar to that of Lab 1 (Import AIE Kernel). It also generates the Target directory (./code in this case) under which you can see the top level graph code under code/src_aie directory and the code/data directory which contains the data logged from the Simulink design along with output from the AIE simulation.

  6. Notice the log in the Progress window after completion. Click OK.
