An add-on library is a communication interface between custom C++ code executed on the Arduino hardware and MATLAB® code executed on your host-computer.
With add-on libraries, end-users can access additional features
of an Arduino directly from
the MATLAB command line
by including the libraries when creating an
arduino connection object. For an
example of an add-on library, see Control Motors Using Adafruit® Motor Shield V2.
The MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware provides you with a framework of classes that you can use to create custom add-on libraries to use with your Arduino device and attached hardware shields. This support package provides classes and functions to help you develop an add-on library, collectively referred to as the Arduino Add-On Software-Development-Kit (SDK).
Before you start, see Custom Add-On Library Concepts.
When you are ready to create your own add-on library, follow the steps in Create Custom Arduino Add-On Device, Library, or Code.
