AXI Manager

Access AXI subordinate memory on FPGA board from MATLAB® or Simulink®


MATLAB AXI master has been renamed to AXI manager. In the software and documentation, the terms "manager" and "subordinate" replace "master" and "slave," respectively.

Access on-board memory locations from MATLAB or Simulink by using the AXI manager IP in your FPGA design. This IP connects to subordinate memory locations on the board. The IP also responds to read and write commands from MATLAB or Simulink, over JTAG, PCI Express®, or Ethernet cable. You can also access memory locations on Xilinx® boards from MATLAB over a USB Ethernet interface.

To use this feature, you must download a hardware support package for your FPGA board. See support package documentation. For an Intel® FPGA board, see AXI Manager. For a Xilinx FPGA board, see AXI Manager.

For information on downloading support packages, see Download FPGA Board Support Package.
