Serial PORT MATLAB – Getting Started


Serial port is a physical communication interface which transfer one bit at a time in contrast to parallel port. In the recent past, before USB serial port communication is the most famous communication medium for many computer peripherals such as mouse, keyboard, Etc. Still in many embedded development environments use serial port communication as data transmission interface.

When it comes to my field of interest, where developing embedded systems, mostly signal processing applications, I wanted to visualize and to do some tweaks to processed data to verify whether my application works properly or not. In this case normal serial port desktop applications does not allowed me to visualize what I needed except the application ‘Serial Chart’. Therefore as usual I ended up with a MATLAB solution that is serial port communication with MATLAB. In this article I will share my experience in sending data and receiving data with interrupts in serial port with MATLAB.

Setting up VTK and ITK environments for Ubuntu


Visualization Toolkit which is known as VTK is an open source software system for image processing, visualization and 3D computer graphics which is also vastly used in biomedical image processing and visualization. VTK is mainly consists of C++ class library and several interpreted interface layers. ITK is Insight Segmentation and Registration toolkit which is also open source and a cross platform which provides an extensive software tools for image analysis. In this article I am going to share my experience on how to install VTK and ITK environments on Ubuntu.
