BeagleBone Blue Support from Simulink Coder

Generate and deploy code for BeagleBone Blue

Capabilities and Features

You can design models in Simulink, generate code using Simulink Coder, and run the resulting executables on the BeagleBoard.org® BeagleBone® Blue board. This low-cost, single-board computer is specifically designed for robotics, mechatronics, and controls.

Simulink Coder Support Package for BeagleBone Blue includes:

  • Automated installation and configuration
  • Automatic model deployment for standalone operation
  • A library of Simulink blocks to operate BeagleBone Blue I/Os such as TCP/IP and UDP/IP send and receive, DC motors, LEDs, and encoders

Students, educators, and hobbyists can use this support package to create algorithms for robotics applications and design embedded systems without using manual programming.

They can verify their algorithms in simulation, and then (using industry-standard automatic code generation) implement them as standalone executables on the board.
