MathWorks HDL Tools add Xilinx FPGA Hardware Verification

Enable FPGA-in-the-Loop Simulation for Verifying HDL Code on Xilinx FPGA Development Boards Using Simulink

NATICK, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 2, 2011MathWorks today announced the availability of EDA Simulator Link 3.3 with new FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL) capabilities for Xilinx FPGA development boards. FIL enables engineers to verify their designs at hardware speeds while using Simulink as a system-level test bench.

The introduction of FIL adds to the comprehensive set of HDL verification options that EDA Simulator Link supports for algorithms created in MATLAB and Simulink. FPGA-based verification provides significantly higher run-time performance than is possible with HDL simulators and increases confidence that the algorithm will work in the real world.

Key product features include the abilities to:

  • Verify HDL implementations of MATLAB code and Simulink models using FPGA development boards for both Spartan and Virtex class devices including the Virtex-6 ML605 development board.
  • Verify HDL implementations of MATLAB code and Simulink models using cosimulation with Mentor Graphics ModelSim, Mentor Graphics Questa, and Cadence Design Systems Incisive Enterprise Simulator
  • Generate TLM 2.0 components for use in SystemC virtual prototyping environments

Availability and Pricing

EDA Simulator Link is available immediately. U.S. list prices start at $2000. For further information, visit the product Web site at mathworks.com/products/eda-simulator/
