Raptor Training, created by our team of experienced controls engineers, provides hands-on experience which enables the new practitioner to gain familiarity with the toolchain by building, deploying, calibrating and refining a real-world control application.

The Raptor Training course is designed to give an understanding of the Raptor Platform in an efficient, hands-on manner. We will start off in the MATLAB/Simulink environment, showing concepts of Raptor-Dev's integration and how to use model-based design to your advantage. Once the project is built, we will flash the compiled code onto the module. Using Raptor-Cal, New Eagle's calibration tool, we will calibrate and test the system.
The topics covered in Raptor Training are listed below.
The following steps should be completed before the Raptor Training course.
For on-site training: If you would like Raptor Training to cover any specific topics, please contact sales at least two weeks prior to training so we can include additional information and examples.
Follow the instructions below for necessary software installations. More details can be found in the Raptor Getting Started Guide.
Windows 7 or later is required.
Please Note: MATLAB and Simulink are used throughout training and having a basic understanding of these tools is a necessary requirement for training.
To learn more about MATLAB and Simulink:
See the Raptor Training videos for more tutorials.
MATLAB 2017b or later is recommended. The following tools from MathWorks are required:
If you don't have all these MathWorks products, we can help procure a temporary MathWorks trial license for you during your training classes. If you would like one, please follow these instructions:
Raptor-Dev and Raptor-Cal
Raptor-Dev and Raptor-Cal can be downloaded from software.neweagle.net. If necessary, first create an account and wait for the confirmation email (requests may take up to two business days to fulfill).
Ensure compatibility between Raptor-Dev and MATLAB using the matrix below.
After installation of Raptor-Dev, the Raptor Configuration Editor will open (alternatively, open it by navigating to Start > Programs > New Eagle > Raptor Configuration Editor). Use this tool to assign Raptor-Dev to the version of MATLAB used for training.
Once Raptor-Dev and Raptor-Cal are installed, navigate to the New Eagle License Viewer (Start > Programs > New Eagle > New Eagle License Viewer). If necessary, request a trial license by following the instructions below.
The appropriate compiler and associated license will be required.

Kvaser Database Editor
Kvaser offers a DBC file creator/editor which can be downloaded here: Kvaser DBC Editor Download
This is required for Video 17.
This section is for all documentation you may need for Raptor Training. The Raptor Training Kit is designed to allow the user to configure hardware, develop software and create calibrations all within the scope of the Raptor Toolchain.
Sample Models/Demo Kits
This section contains the source software for any Demo Kit offered by New Eagle. This includes the source Simulink model and wiring diagrams, along with the appropriate Raptor packages, displays and calibrations. The demo kits are recommended to test out the Raptor Toolchain briefly yet effectively. For a more in-depth look, see the training kit options above.
