What is the difference between this and the support package under the academia link (http://www.mathworks.com/academia/beagleboard/)?
Is it just for an older Matlab Distribution or are there any differences. Especially since this version apparently needs Embedded Coder, while the other package doesn't.
NOTE: Starting with R2012a, the ability to deploy applications to Beagleboard is included in Simulink (no additional products are required). For more info, see
For a summary of Beagleboard support in releases prior to R2012a, see http://www.mathworks.com/support/solutions/en/data/1-GYO11R/index.html
There are no GPIO blocks available for BeagleBoard in this support package. However, we are planning to add support for GPIO read/write in a future release.
There is no PWM on BeagleBoard (xM or Bx/Cx). You can emulate a basic PWM using GPIO but this would be a poor substitute.
BeagleBone support is planned for a feature release.
