> What I am not fully understand is one statement at the instruction web above: "This action ('Run on Target Hardware') automatically downloads and runs your model on the board." My understanding is, the model is runned by the Beagleboard, not the PC and, most importantly, the Beagleboard also returns the simulation results simultaneously back to the PC, so that we see the results in a scope at the PC. > > If my understanding is right, the Beagleboard must communicate with the Simulink somehow via the TCP/IP link during the runing . Is the beagleboard treated in a similar way as a xPC target?
Similar... both use External Mode to accomplish the host-target communication.

They are located under Help Browser-> Other Demos (at the very bottom of the tree)->Target for Use with Beagleboard Hardware->Tutorials/Examples
the Parametric Audio Equalizer is there under Examples, and working through each of the tutorial model in order is recommended as that will show you the basics, including exteranl mode for Beagle to host communication...
