Hardware Support

Capabilities and Features

SoC Blockset Support Package for Xilinx® Devices enables you to design, evaluate, and implement SoC hardware and software architectures on Xilinx FPGA and Zynq® SoC boards.

Using this support package along with Embedded Coder and HDL Coder, you can build, load, and execute SoC models on Xilinx FPGA and Zynq SoC boards. This enables you to verify your designs on real hardware and perform measurements with real-time monitoring and visualization. You can:

  • Deploy SoC applications to hardware using the product’s SoC Builder workflow to prototype and implement on supported boards
  • Capture I/O signals from hardware testing for reuse in simulation or in further hardware testing
  • Perform on-hardware profiling.

The support package enables these capabilities by inserting monitor IP into programmable logic and by instrumenting generated C code to transmit run-time information back to MATLAB sessions.
