Imperix has made publicly available a few ready-to-use B-Box RCP units, allowing its customers, personnel and other engineers to begin experimenting (or continue working) with B-Box, thanks to a remote connection.

Step-by-step guide

1) Setup the VPN client

At first, install the OpenVPN connect client in order to be able to establish a remote connection to our publicly-available B-Box RCP units.

As soon the program is installed, launch the OpenVPN Connect client. You’re expected to fill the server data in the window that appears, then the login data. Complete the connection information as follows:

  • Server URL: https://bbox-test.intranet.imperix.ch

  • Username: ****

  • Password: ****

**** login details will be provided after registration.

Please register here to request credentials and get access to our dedicated VPN network, where B-Box RCP units are connected. Access is 100% free and unrestricted!


As soon as this is done, you can initialize the connection from the main screen of OpenVPN Connect.

Should you experience connection issues, please contact support@imperix.ch.

2) Choose and install the computer software

Programming the B-Box RCP can be done with two different Software Development Kits (SDKs):

  • ACG SDK enables graphical coding from within Simulink (requires Simulink, Simulink Coder, Embedded Coder and Matlab Coder products, starting from 2015a version).

  • CPP SDK enables C/C++ coding from an Eclipse-based IDE provided in the product installer. It does not require additional software.

To connect to the targets, the latest stable release of the CPP or ACG SDK is required. It can be downloaded from https://imperix.com/downloads.

3) Read the getting started guide

Two guides are available, depending on the selected SDK:

4) Identify an available target

The currents status of available devices can be check in real-time on https://bbox-test.intranet.imperix.ch/bbox-check/.

5) Connect and run your code

Now, you should be ready to launch your code on a selected target.
