Manage target hardware and build tool information


Use these classes to manage target hardware and build tool information. For example, register new target hardware for code generation, set up target connectivity for external mode and processor-in-the-loop (PIL) simulations, or create custom CMake toolchain definitions for building generated code on your development computer.
