To use GPU Coder™ for CUDA® C/C++ code generation, you must install the following products:
MATLAB Coder™ (required).
Parallel Computing Toolbox™ (required).
Neural Network Toolbox™(required for deep learning).
Image Processing Toolbox™(recommended).
Embedded Coder® (recommended).
If MATLAB is installed on a path that contains non 7-bit ASCII characters, such as Japanese characters, MATLAB Coder does not work because it cannot locate code generation library functions.
For instructions on installing MathWorks® products, see the MATLAB installation documentation for your platform. If you have
installed MATLAB and want to check which other MathWorks products are installed, enter
ver in the MATLAB Command Window.
NVIDIA® GPU enabled for CUDA with compute capability 3.2 or higher (Is my GPU supported?).
CUDA toolkit and driver. The default installation comes
cuSOLVER libraries. GPU Coder has been tested with CUDA toolkit v9.0 (Get the CUDA toolkit).
GCC C/C++ compiler 6.3.x
Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2013
Microsoft Visual Studio 2015
Microsoft Visual Studio 2017
nvcc compiler supports multiple versions of
GCC and therefore you can generate CUDA code with other versions of GCC. However, there
may be compatibility issues when executing the generated code
from MATLAB as the C/C++ run-time libraries that are included
with the MATLAB installation are compiled for GCC 6.3.
The code generation requirements for deep learning networks depends on the platform you are targeting.

cuDNN support is on Windows and Linux.
TensorRT support is only on Linux.
Open Source Computer Vision Library (OpenCV), v3.1.0 is required for deep learning examples.
Note: The examples require
separate libs such as,
CUDA toolkit for ARM and Linaro GCC 4.9 toolchain for the TX2. Use the
CUDA toolkit for ARM and Linaro GCC 4.9 toolchain for the TX1.
CUDA toolkit 6.5 for ARM and Linaro GCC 4.8 toolchain for the TK1. Use the
To set up the Linaro tools, see the instructions on Cross-Compilation on Linux.
Embedded GPU targeting is supported only from the Linux platform.
