This paper proposes a method for Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) targeting microcontrollers. The methodology relies on a Matlab/Simulink interface which makes the target configuration and coding easier. Developing low level embedded code is bypassed by a high-level implementation which is straightforward for control system engineers. This article is intended for students, engineers or researchers looking to validate the effectiveness of their control algorithms on industrial targets. The design procedure is illustrated by testing various speed and current feedback loop on a DC motor.
