Specify whether to use an Embedded Coder support package
EmbeddedCoderSupportPackage specifies if
you want to use an Embedded Coder® support package for your reference
design. Use this parameter if you are targeting a standalone FPGA
board or an SoC device such as the Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 platform.
If you are targeting a standalone FPGA board, the reference designs do not require an
Embedded Coder support package. If
hRD is the reference design object
that you construct with the
hdlcoder.ReferenceDesign class, then use this
hRD.EmbeddedCoderSupportPackage = ... hdlcoder.EmbeddedCoderSupportPackage.None;
When you are not using the support package, HDL Coder™ displays the Generate Software Interface task in the
HDL Workflow Advisor, but has the Generate Simulink software interface
model check box greyed out. If you have HDL Verifier™ installed, on the Set Target Reference Design task,
set Insert AXI Manager (HDL Verifier required) to
Ethernet based on the
interface that communicates between your host machine and the FPGA board. For Ethernet,
specify the IP address of the FPGA board using the Board IP Address
By default, the
Ethernet option is available for
only the Artix®-7 35T Arty, Kintex®-7 KC705, and Virtex®-7 VC707 boards. To enable this option for other Xilinx boards that have the Ethernet physical layer (PHY), manually add
the Ethernet media access controller (MAC) Hub IP in the
plugin_board file using the
before you launch the HDL Workflow Advisor tool.
You can then generate a host interface model or host interface script or both in the Generate Software Interface task to rapidly prototype and test the HDL IP core functionality by using the AXI Manager. See Generate Host Interface Script to Probe and Rapidly Prototype HDL IP Core.
To generate a host interface model, you must map each DUT signal that you want
to capture to the
AXI4-Lite interfaces in the Set Target
If you are targeting SoC devices, use this syntax depending on whether you are using an Intel® SoC or a Xilinx Zynq platform.
