    This example has the same function as the example you are using but has a more detailed X4 configuration process and other functions demo, so I suggest you switch to this latest example.

    That example doesn't run, I get this error:

    Undefined function or variable 'islinux'.

    Error in add_ModuleConnector_path (line 25)
    elseif ismac || islinux

    Error in test (line 21)
    add_ModuleConnector_path();
    I'm guessing islinux should instead be isunix?

    Yes, It should be isunix. Thanks for report!

    I've fixed this islinux issue, but I am unable to run the code at even 25fps. It hangs on this line:
    [int, len, frame_count, data]= xep.read_message_data_float;

    At 17fps it runs OK, but we need to collect data at 400+ fps. On windows we could do so using radar.GetFrameNormalized();, why isn't this xep.read_message_data_float able to run faster than 25fps?

    The maximum FPS is decided by several X4 chips settings. You can refer to below application note on how to configure X4 to achieve a specific maximum FPS.

    This is also a community thread had discussion on this topic:

    HI
    I am running 500+ fps using xep.read_message_data_float on my Mac in matlab. Have you tried the matlab script giving 400+ fps on windows on your Mac and vice versa for the matlab script running at only 25fps on Windows ?

    I see, I didn't realize the default configuration had a maximum frame rate of 17.

    I am trying to explore the settings to make sure my frame rate (and other settings) are applied correctly, but disp_x4settings() won't work. The xep.x4driver_get_tx_center_frequency call returns this error:

    Error using ModuleConnector.RadarInterface/xep_x4driver_get_tx_center_frequency (line 381)
    Call returns status=1

    Error in ModuleConnector.XEP/x4driver_get_tx_center_frequency (line 209)
    status = this.radarInterface.xep_x4driver_get_tx_center_frequency(this.x2_instance, itPtr );

    In fact, none of the getters work except for x4driver_get_frame_area and x4driver_get_frame_offset.

    Did you do get_xep.x4driver_init before starting to set/get registers ?

    This function is not supported by old firmware, you can just comment on this line or try to update to latest firmware through XeThru Explorer.
