HDL Verifier Support Packages for FPGA Boards

The FPGA board support packages contain the definition files for all the supported boards for FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL) simulation, FPGA data capture, or AXI manager. Before you can use one of the features that connects to the FPGA board, download at least one of the FPGA board support packages or customize your own board definition file.

To download FPGA board support packages, select the MATLAB® HOME tab and click Add-Ons. To customize a board definition file, see FPGA Board Manager. You can also install it offline.

Install with Connection to Internet

After you have downloaded an FPGA board support package, you can use the FPGA verification features from HDL Verifier™, such as FPGA-in-the-Loop Simulation, AXI Manager, or FPGA Data Capture.

Install Support Package Offline
