This paper presents a personal computer (PC)-based data acquisition and control tool that uses a Peripheral Interface Controller (PIC) microcontroller, Matlab, and Simulink. Specifically, a library of PIC microcontroller functions for Simulink is created. Moreover, the PIC microcontroller and Matlab are merged, by exploiting their serial communication capability, to produce an inexpensive data acquisition and control platform. Finally, the efficacy of this data acquisition and control platform is illustrated by performing angular position control of a DC motor.
