Run Model on Gumstix Overo Hardware

This example shows how to prepare, configure, and run a simple model on your Overo® hardware.

Before starting this procedure:

  • Connect your board to the network and to a power supply.

  • Create or open a Simulink® model.

To prepare and run the model:

  1. Use File > Save As to create a working copy of your model. Keep the original model as a backup copy.

  2. In your model, select Tools > Run on Target Hardware > Prepare to Run. This action changes the model Configuration Parameters.

  3. When the Run on Target Hardware opens, set the Target hardware parameter to Gumstix Overo.

  4. If you have changed boards since the last time you updated the firmware or ran a model, update the Host name, User name, and Password parameters.

  5. Click the Deploy to Hardware button.

    This action automatically downloads and runs your model on the board.

      Note:   Pressing RESET or cycling the power on the Overo hardware during this step can cause the ssh utility to hang.

Running a new or updated model on the board:

  • Automatically stops a running model with the same name.

  • Does not stop running models that have other names.

    Caution   Avoid using the RESET button to stop a running model and reboot the board. Doing so can corrupt operating system and program files. To fix corrupt files, replace the firmware as described in Replace Firmware on Gumstix Overo Hardware.

    Note:   If you have the Embedded Coder® or Simulink Coder™ software, you can use External mode with a model that contains Model blocks (uses the "Model reference").
