Create an Embedded Linux Device Configuration

An embedded Linux® device configuration allows you to add a customized device configuration to the SoC Blockset™ for your embedded Linux device. The following process shows how to add a configuration to support the features of your particular device.

  1. Open a Simulink® model.

  2. On the Apps tab, click System on Chip (SoC). In the System on Chip (SoC) window, set Hardware Board to Embedded Linux Board. Click Finish.

  3. On the System on Chip tab, click Hardware Settings to open the Configuration Parameters window.

  4. On the Hardware Implementation > Target hardware resources > Board Configuration > Name parameter, select <Add new Board Configuration>.

  5. In the Add new Board Configuration window, enter a new configuration name in the Board Configuration name parameter. Click OK.

  6. In the Board Configuration group, you can optionally set the other features of your board configuration. These features include

    • Operating mode of the Linux environment as either 32-bit or 64-bit.

    • Number of cores accessible in the embedded processor.

    • Specific processor family architecture, such as cortex-a57.

    • Floating-point option to choose a floating-point hardware acceleration available to your processor architecture.

  7. Click Save to save the new configuration.

When selecting the Hardware Board as Embedded Linux Board, your new configuration will be available in the Board Configuration group.
