DPI Generation for Simulink Subsystem
You can use a DPI component generated from a Simulink subsystem in two ways :
Export SystemVerilog DPI Component — You can integrate this component into your HDL simulation as a behavioral model. The component generator supports test points and tunable parameters. You can also generate a SystemVerilog test bench that verifies the generated DPI component against data vectors from your subsystem. See Generate SystemVerilog DPI Component.
Generate SystemVerilog DPI Test Bench (with HDL Coder™) — Use this test bench to verify your generated HDL code using C code generated from your entire Simulink model, including the DUT and data sources. See Verify HDL Design Using SystemVerilog DPI Test Bench (HDL Coder).
See DPI Component Generation with Simulink. You must have a Simulink Coder™ license to use this feature.

Generate and Verify a DPI Component
If you have a Simulink Coder license, you can generate SystemVerilog DPI components using one of two methods.
Choose between the two types of SVDPI test benches.
