Re: MATLAB

No promises from MathWorks, but something may be happening behind the scenes for Simulink to support raspberry pi for rapid prototyping using hardware-in-the-loop development. I really hope so because this would be a huge step forward, particularly for educational use.

Re: MATLAB

True, Luke, and it depends on what you are doing. For number crunching stuff your approach would work very well. Buying Simulink Coder can do this very well too as it automatically generates C/C++ code for compiling and running on the hardware platform stand alone. But for rapid prototyping and hard...

Re: MATLAB

I recently attended a MATLAB / Simulink seminar, which was excellent by the way, and part of the agenda covered control of robots, motorised webcam for image processing, etc. It turns out that even the basic student edition of MathWorks software (http://www.mathworks.co.uk/academia/student_version/)...

Yes indeed!  I'm in Duluth until Thursday morning.  Less than an hour away from you by the look of it.  Then back to Ireland for a nice week off.

Re: Compliance testing

Good point as they are manufacturing under licence and not just an importer.  But CE testing must have been done on the first prototypes before building 10,000 boards?  Just wondering what has been done by the foundation and what standards are applicable.
