Intel FPGA Board Support from HDL Verifier

HDL Verifier™ automates the verification of HDL code on FPGA boards by providing connections between your FPGA board and your simulations in Simulink® or MATLAB®.

  • FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL) enables you to run a Simulink or MATLAB simulation that is synchronized with an HDL design running on an FPGA board.

  • FPGA data capture is a way to observe signals from your design while the design is running on the FPGA. It captures a window of signal data from the FPGA, based on your configuration and trigger settings, and returns the data to MATLAB or Simulink.

  • AXI manager provides access to live on-board memory locations from Simulink or MATLAB. You must include the AXI manager IP in your FPGA design.

To use each of these features, you must have a supported FPGA board connected to your MATLAB host computer using a supported connection type, and a supported synthesis tool.

Supported Intel FPGA Boards

This support package enables FIL simulation for the boards in the table. FPGA data capture and AXI manager are available on those boards that have JTAG USB Blaster I or USB Blaster II connections.
