Is it possible to generate .o and .a files with Coder?

From what I can see Coder can generate mex files, plain C src, and .lib and .dll libraries. Is it possible to generate .o or .a libraries?

Yes. It probably already generates .o files but it might possibly be removing them if it builds the library correctly.
Which kind of library it builds will depend upon the compile flags you configure.

You can use:
cfg = coder.config('lib');
codegen -config cfg ...
to generate a static library for your current platform or choose the "Static Library" option for the output type in the MATLAB Coder App.
On Linux and Mac this will be a .a file. On Windows, this will be a .lib file. As Walter says, on platforms where .o is the object file extension, those will be produced as intermediate output during compilation.
