You can't build CUDA kernels using mex without Parallel Computing Toolbox. This requires the NVIDIA compiler nvcc and the infrastructure to call that from mex is only provided with PCT.
You need to build your device code into a separate library independently of MATLAB and built using nvcc, and then write mex functions that link to it using the -l option.
