Presentation Abstract

Simulink is a great tool for modeling, control system design, and dynamic simulation, but it can also be connected to hardware for testing and implementation.  In this presentation, we will introduce a variety of MathWorks solutions for connecting Simulink to hardware.  We will include a tour of the latest R2012b release, which includes the all new MATLAB Desktop and Simulink Editor.  We will also show a demo of how you can easily connect and run Simulink models on low cost hardware such as the BeagleBoard.

Software required (Software, version, license,…)

None.  I have my own laptop, with the software I need.

Hardware required (computer, monitors, connectors, adapters, memory cards …)

  • I would like an external monitor (19” would be fine), with HDMI to DVI cable.
  • I will need a power strip, I have a number of things (4-5) to plug in. (laptop, monitor, Demo HW x3)

Number of boards that will be available for the workshop?


Number of Presentations to teach (max 2)


Any time constraints?

Not currently known.  I will have flight home in the evening, departure time TBD.

Prizes for students (workshop attendees, raffles, door prizes,….)

Small giveways/swag available at the tabletop!
