File Information

The PandaBoard ( is a low-cost, single-board computer designed for audio, video, and digital signal processing.

With R2012b, Simulink provides built-in support for prototyping, testing, and running models on the PandaBoard and PandaBoard ES. You can design algorithms in Simulink for audio processing and computer vision applications then see them perform with hardware.


Note: Do not use the Download Submission button for R2012b.

1. Open R2012b MATLAB.
2. Enter "targetinstaller" at the MATLAB command prompt.
3. When Target Installer opens, choose Internet, and follow the instructions provided.

For R2013a and beyond - see:

Simulink support for the PandaBoard includes the following I/O driver blocks:
• Video Input and Display
• Audio Input and Output
• UDP Send and Receive

The PandaBoard Ubuntu image comes with a pre-installed VNC server (x11vnc). One can connect to the PandaBoard using his/her favorite VNC client (I use UltraVNC). To launch the x11vnc server on the PandaBoard, execute the following on the MATLAB command line:

>> h = panda
>> h.connect
>> h.execute('export DISPLAY=:0.0; xhost+; x11vnc -bg')

Using a VNC, one can see the graphical desktop of PandaBoard without attaching a monitor to the board.
