What Is a Support Package?

A support package is an add-on that enables you to use a MathWorks® product with specific third-party hardware and software.

For example, support packages available for use with MATLAB® include:

  • Arduino® Hardware
  • LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Hardware
  • Raspberry Pi™ Hardware
  • USB Webcam

For a complete list of available support packages, check the Mathworks Website here: Hardware Support.

Install Support Packages

You install support packages using the MATLAB Add-Ons menu. You can also use Add-Ons to update installed support package software or update the firmware on third-party hardware.

To install support packages, on the MATLAB Home tab, in the Environment section, click Add-Ons > Get Hardware Support Packages.
