SystemDesigner provides a visual representation of the hardware in a system and the software targeted to specific devices in the system. Use SystemDesigner to view the live hardware in your system, design a system using hardware you do and do not own, and target software components to specific devices in the system.
Every project contains a SystemDesigner document directly under the project item on the Project Files tab. You cannot remove or exclude the SystemDesigner document from a project, and the document does not appear in the project source file location on your computer.
The following image highlights parts of the editor you use to view or design a system, and configure properties of devices in the system.
