Show supported target hardware and device details



hdlcoder.supportedDevices shows a link to a report that contains the device and device property names for target devices supported by your synthesis tool.

You can use the supported target device information to set SynthesisToolChipFamily, SynthesisToolDeviceName, SynthesisToolPackageName, and SynthesisToolSpeedValue for your model.

To see the report link, you must have a synthesis tool set up. If you have more than one synthesis tool available, you see a different report link for each synthesis tool.
