Download and Install QEMU Emulator

QEMU is an emulator and virtualization machine that allows you to run a cross-platform application on your computer. You can use QEMU for verification and validation of the generated code for ARM Cortex-M hardware using Embedded Coder® Support Package for ARM® Cortex®-M Processors on your computer without the need of the actual ARM Cortex-M based processor.

The Embedded Coder Interface to QEMU emulator add-on helps you to download the QEMU emulator. The QEMU emulator is used in verification and validation of the generated code for ARM Cortex-M3 target. However, this add-on does not support any code generation.

You can use the getQEMUEmulatorAddOn function that helps you install and download the QEMU software to emulate ARM Cortex-M3 on your computer.

Note

You can install Embedded Coder Interface to QEMU emulator only on Windows® platform.

The steps for installing the Embedded Coder Interface to QEMU emulator is as follows:

  1. Perform any of the following actions:

    • On the MATLAB Home tab, in the Environment section, click Add-Ons > Get Add-Ons.
