Install Support for BeagleBoard Hardware

This example shows how to add support for BeagleBoard hardware to the Simulink® product. After you complete this process, and replace the firmware on the BeagleBoard hardware, you can run a Simulink model on your BeagleBoard hardware.

To install support for BeagleBoard hardware:

  1. In a MATLAB Command Window, enter supportPackageInstaller. This starts the Support Package Installer.

  2. Follow the instructions and default settings provided by Support Package Installer to complete the installation. For more information about the options on a particular screen, click the Help button.

This process downloads and installs the following items on your host computer:

  • Third-party software development tools

  • A Simulink block library called Simulink Support Package for BeagleBoard Hardware.

  • Examples

For convenience, this document occasionally refers to BeagleBoard hardware as a "board" or as "target hardware".

To check for updates, repeat this process when a new version of MATLAB® software is released. You can also check for updates between releases.
