Intel FPGA Board Support from HDL Verifier

Use HDL Verifier for FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL) support for FPGA-based verification on Intel FPGA boards

Capabilities and Features

HDL Verifier™ automates the verification of HDL code on Intel® (formerly Altera®) FPGA boards by enabling FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL) testing. FIL testing helps ensure that the MATLAB® algorithm or Simulink® model behaves as expected in the real world, increasing confidence in your silicon implementation. The MATLAB algorithm or Simulink model is used to drive FPGA input stimuli and to analyze the output of the FPGA. With FIL testing, you can verify your design at FPGA speeds, enabling you to run more extensive sets of test cases and perform regression tests on your design.

HDL Verifier supports FIL verification over the Gigabit Ethernet interface or over JTAG for select Intel boards with MAX 10, Stratix V, Stratix IV, Cyclone V, Cyclone IV, Cyclone III, Arria II, Arria V, Arria V SoC, and Arria 10 SoC devices.
