I have enumerated my experience working with MATLAB serial port interfacing features in this article. Lot of examples are also provided. this will defenitely sevr as a self contained tutorial for all those who would like to access COM ports from MATLAB. It will get you started as well as take you all along. There will be minor bugs in the files that i have given here. Please bear with me i have tried my best to make it as good as possible with the time constraints.
