Supported EDA Tools and Hardware
Use this support package with:
Xilinx® Vivado® 2020.1
Xilinx ISE 14.7
For tool setup instructions, see
HDL Coder™ can generate code from your algorithm in Simulink® or MATLAB® and deploy it to standalone FPGA boards. Use:
IP Core Generationto generate an HDL IP core for your algorithm in MATLAB or Simulink, and then integrate the IP core into the default system reference design or your own custom reference design that you register for the board. This workflow supports Xilinx Kintex®-7 series and the newer FPGA families.
FPGA Turnkeyto generate HDL code for your algorithm in Simulink or MATLAB, and the FPGA top level wrapper HDL code for running your design on a standalone FPGA board. This workflow supports Xilinx ISE-based FPGA boards. For FPGA development boards that have more than one FPGA device, only one such device can be used with FPGA Turnkey.
To use these workflows, you must have a supported FPGA board connected to your MATLAB host computer using a supported connection type, and a supported synthesis tool.

When you use the
IP Core Generation workflow, you can add
support for custom boards. For more information, see Board and Reference Design Registration System.
The board and reference design plugins that are used in the Access DUT Registers on Xilinx Pure FPGA Board Using IP Core Generation Workflow serves as an example when you add support for your own custom board.
