The BeagleBoard (www.beagleboard.org) is a low-cost, single-board computer designed for audio, video, and digital signal processing.
With R2012a, Simulink provides built-in support for prototyping, testing, and running models on the BeagleBoard. You can design algorithms in Simulink for audio processing and computer vision applications then see them perform with hardware.
To install support for the BeagleBoard, at the R2012a MATLAB command prompt, type "targetinstaller". Target Installer opens.
• If you did not download the support package, choose Internet. Target Installer automatically downloads and installs the support package.
• If you did download the support package, choose Folder. After you specify a location, Target Installer installs the support package.
Simulink Support Package for BeagleBoard Hardware includes the following driver blocks:
• Video Input and Display
• Audio Input and Output
• UDP Send and Receive
