Are you prototyping complex algorithms for medical devices? Engineers often prototype and test their initial designs on embedded evaluation boards, or low-cost prototyping hardware. Testing these algorithms on hardware often requires working with test equipment. Sometimes, you need to design special purpose test rigs, interfacing with sensors and actuators, and controlling them in real-time, acquiring and logging test data and performing live analysis.  

Join us for this seminar to learn how to design and simulate algorithms for medical devices and deploy them on different hardware targets with MATLAB and Simulink. Starting from low-cost hardware, such as Raspberry Pi, to embedded controller and FPGA development kits, to fully customizable Speedgoat real-time target testing platform, we will demonstrate different options and methods available to you to accelerate your prototyping and testing workflows with MATLAB and Simulink. 

This event is part of a series of related topics. View the full list of events in this series.


  • Early prototyping using low-cost hardware (Raspberry Pi, Arduino etc.)
  • Implementing and testing algorithms on embedded controller development boards from TI, NXP, STM etc. 
  • Rapid control prototyping and hardware-in-loop testing using Speedgoat CPU + FPGA based target machines
  • Interfacing with test instruments and communication protocols  

About the Presenter
