Arduino Support from MATLAB

Student-priced microcontroller board for introducing electrical engineering, motor control, and mechatronics

MATLAB Support Package for Arduino enables you to use MATLAB® or Simulink® to communicate with the Arduino® board over a USB cable. This package is based on a server program running on the board, which listens to commands arriving via serial port, executes the commands, and, if needed, returns a result.

This approach helps you:

  • Start programming right away without any additional toolboxes.
  • Work in the MATLAB or Simulink environment for interactive development and debugging.
  • Interactively develop programs to acquire analog and digital data, and to control DC, servo, and stepper motors.
  • Run control loops at up to 25 Hz (not real time).
  • Introduce mechatronics, signal processing, and electronics concepts in classroom labs.

Simulink blocks included with this package only support host-based communication.
