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.
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:
**** 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 email@example.com.
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.
Should you experience issues throughout the process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
