Hardware Support

Capabilities and Features

MATLAB Coder™, Simulink Coder™, and Embedded Coder® generate ANSI®/ISO® C/C++ code that can be compiled and executed on ARM® Cortex®-R processors. Embedded Coder lets you easily configure the code generated from MATLAB® and Simulink® algorithms to control software interfaces, optimize execution performance, and minimize memory consumption.

In addition to ANSI/ISO C, Embedded Coder provides support to perform and on-target rapid prototyping for the TI Hercules RM57 Launchpad. It also provides an SDK for extending support of on-target rapid prototyping to other Cortex-R boards (e.g., TI Hercules TMS570 and RM4x development boards).

You can also use the RM57Lx Launchpad to :

  • Perform code verification using PIL tests with TI’s ARM compiler and debugger
  • Perform on-target rapid prototyping of Simulink models using the FreeRTOS port for the RM57Lx processors, as well as a limited peripheral block library for theTI Hercules RM57Lx Launchpad.
  • Tune parameters on, and monitor data from, a Simulink model running on the TI Hercules RM57Lx Launchpad (External mode).
  • Profile task and function execution times of executables running in real time on the hardware

Embedded Coder hardware support packages offer built-in, limited, support for specific hardware, schedulers, and compilers. MathWorks Consulting Services is available to help with extensions to other environments.
