SoC Builder

Build, load, and execute SoC model on SoC, FPGA, and MCU boards


The SoC Builder tool steps through the various stages for building and executing an SoC model on an SoC, FPGA, or MCU board.

Using this tool, you can:

  • Review the model information provided to the tool.

  • Choose between different build actions.

  • Set up a folder to store all generated files.

  • Configure the FPGA parameters.

  • Map model tasks to interrupt service routines.

  • Configure the peripheral register settings.

  • Review the memory map and edit it if needed.

  • Validate that the model has all required components for generating a programming file.

  • Build the model using Xilinx® Vivado®, Intel® Quartus®, Texas Instruments® Code Composer Studio™ tool families.

  • Configure the Ethernet connectivity.

  • Load the programming file to your board.

  • Run the application.

Open the SoC Builder

  • Simulink® Toolstrip: On the System on Chip tab, click Configure, Build & Deploy.

  • Simulink Toolstrip: click the System on Chip tab, and then press Ctrl+B.

  • MATLAB® command prompt: Enter socBuilder('modelname').


If the System on Chip tab is not visible, on the Apps tab, under Setup to Run on Hardware click the System on Chip (SoC) app icon.

Programmatic Use

expand all

socBuilder('modelname') opens SoC Builder and loads the specified model into the tool.
