Learn RapidSTM32 in A Day

This tutorial aims at teaching beginners how to use RapidSTM32 Blockset in ONE DAY (approximately 6 hours). After completing the tutorials, you will have enough basic knowledge to use the Blockset to implement a variety of basic but useful applications such as:

  • Real-time data acquisition into Matlab/Simulink
  • Add your own signal processing algorithm in Matlab (m-script) language
  • Control external hardware from Simulink
  • Use digital input/output ports
  • Generate PWM signals
  • Simulate and actually display some data on a character LCD
  • Send data to a PC via USB as a (Virtual) COM port
  • Understand the basic architecture of the generated code
  • Create an arbitrary function generator with Digital to Analog Module
  • Create a data logger to micro SD card

Yes!! all those within 6 hours, no kidding. We are truly taking about Rapid Prototyping. That's Why our duck can peel banana skin? :)

Common "How to"

This section shows basic common "how to" required for most RapidSTM32 projects.

  1. Getting Ready (Setting up for RapidSTM32 Blockset)
  2. Create a new model and set it to use RapidSTM32 target
  3. Set FiO Std in USB In Application Programming (IAP) Mode
  4. Initiate the Build Process
  5. Set FiO Std in Run Custom User Program Mode
  6. Set FiO Std in Mass Storage Device Mode

Advanced "How to"

This section shows some useful "how to" for advanced users.

  1. Create a blank template for manual C coding for use with FiO boards
  2. Modify or add custom C code for FiO Boards from Keil RVMDK
  3. Generate and use the generated C code with Non-FiO Boards
