Intel® and MathWorks have collaborated to deliver a suite of design tools aimed at providing seamless integration of system models developed in MATLAB and Simulink with Intel FPGAs and SoCs.
Engineers using MATLAB and Simulink for system modeling, algorithm development, visualization, and advanced debugging can easily target Intel FPGAs. In addition, they can be guaranteed that code generated will be optimized and ready for deployment and production.
In particular, Intel and MathWorks have partnered for the following key products:
- DSP Builder for Intel FPGAs
Automatic hardware description language (HDL) code generation from Simulink for designers using model-based design. The DSP Builder generates target-optimized VHDL from Simulink, and its unique fused datapath flow provides highly optimized implementation of floating-point models. HDL Coder and DSP Builder have been integrated through technical collaboration between Intel and MathWorks, enabling designers to generate HDL from Simulink models that include hierarchical subsystems built in the DSP Builder.
- HDL Coder
Automatic Verilog/VHDL intellectual property (IP) core generation and system integration from MATLAB and Simulink for Intel FPGAs and SoCs.
- Embedded Coder
Automatic C-code generation and system integration from MATLAB/Simulink geared toward Intel SoCs.
- HDL Verifier
Includes verification of HDL against testbenches created in MATLAB and Simulink via FPGA-in-the-Loop verification with Intel FPGAs and SoCs.
