System Configuration with MATLAB

Development and target computer configuration, target computer boot method, confidence test

With MATLAB® language, configure communication with the target computer. Determine the target computer configuration and configure the Simulink® Real-Time™ RTOS so that it uses as much as possible of the target computer capabilities. For more information, see Set Up Target Computer Ethernet Connection.
