I am considering buying an AMD Virtex 7 FPGA VC707 Evaluation Kit.
Does MathWorks support the VC707 with HDL Coder & HDL Verifier? If yes, starting at what version of your tools and ending with what version?
What about the Aldec TySOM-2-7Z100 Embedded Prototyping Board?

HDL Coder supports several evaluation boards out of the box. Virtex-7 VC707 development board is supported out of the box.
HDL Coder supports an open API to develop integration with new boards.
Custom Board and Reference Design
Define and register custom reference design or custom board for AMD Xilinx® FPGA
You have to follow the board registration system workflow.
Board and Reference Design Registration System
You can define custom boards and custom reference designs so that they are available as target hardware options in the SoC workflow. Custom boards and custom reference designs use the same system that HDL Coder™ uses for predefined board and reference design targets.

Hello Brian,
My name is Manasi Vaidy and I will be assisting you with your Technical Support Case #06521622 regarding 'Does MathWorks support the VC707 with HDL Coder & HDL Verifier? If yes, starting at what version of your tools and ending with what version?'.
MathWorks supports the AMD Virtex 7 FPGA VC707 Evaluation Kit with HDL Coder and HDL Verifier. The support for this board starts with MATLAB R2013a and Simulink 8.1, and it continues with later versions of the software until the current latest one R2023b.
Regarding the Aldec TySOM-2-7Z100 Embedded Prototyping Board, MathWorks does not explicitly mention support for this specific board on their website. However, they provide general support for the Xilinx Zynq-7000family of devices, which includes the Zynq-7000 SoC used in the TySOM-2-7Z100 board. You can use HDL Coder and HDL Verifier with this family of devices, starting from the same versions mentioned earlier (MATLAB R2013a and Simulink 8.1) and continuing with later versions of the software until the current version R2023b.
The two links below have a lot of details about the various details and points to remember for different boards including the two you are considering, there are no obvious red flags for either as far as I see. You can also visit these documentation pages to check the support provided for various other boards as you are finalizing which one to purchase:

I am confident that this information answers the question you had, so I am marking this case as closed. However, please do nto hesitate to reach out to me if you have any further questions. I will be happy to reopen the case and assist you.
Sincerely,
Manasi Vaidya
