            MicroDAQ toolbox conbines Scilab/XCos environment with Embedded Solutions
MicroDAQ real-time control measurement system equpted with TI C6000 DSP. Module
extends Scilab by allowing user to automatically generate DSP applications
directly from XCos scheme. User can use custom XCos blocks which gives access to
MicroDAQ hardware (ADC, DAC, DIO, PWM, UART, Quadrature Encoder). Generated DSP
application utilizes SYS/BIOS real-time opearting system combined with code
generated from XCos scheme.
Depending on configuration, DSP application can be generated as a standalone or
Ext application (similar like External Mode in Matlab/Simulink). In standalone
mode generated application contains only real-time task, while in Ext mode code
contains real-time task and low priority task which exchanges data with Scilab
via TCP/IP protocol. Starting and stoping DSP application is integrated with
standard Xcos Start/Stop buttons, module allows using standard sinks blocks to
view live data from application running on DSP processor. Module allows to plot
DSP execution profiles and generate DSP applications in ?release? and ?debug?
mode. Generated DSP application can be used with Scilab script. Module provides
macros for loading DSP application, reading data from running application on
MicroDAQ device and terminating DSP execution. Attached example shows how to use
generated DSP application to compute FFT from data acquired from ADC input.
MicroDAQ module simplifies development of real-time control measurements
applications, together with MicroDAQ hardware platform gives ?out of the box?
exeperience and can be an alternative to expensive commercial systems.

Toolbox allows to generate DSP code directly from Xcos scheme. In order to
compile generated C code user needs to install Texas Instruments Code Composer
Studio 5.5 (free license with xds100 emulator). After Code Composer installation
Scilab MicroDAQ toolbox needs to be configured with microdaq_setup function.
Wizard will configure Scilab MicroDAQ toolbox to work with DSP compiler.

   When i tried to tried to execute microdaq module for linux, i got the following error.
I am using ubuntu 12.04 and 64-bit.

Start MicroDAQ toolbox ver: 1.0.
	Load macros
	Load demos
	Load help
	Load MLink library
Link failed for dynamic library
An error occurred:
