-Xilinx Foundation ISE or WebPACK (assuming your device can be supported by the free WebPACK tools). See here for the differences here:
-Mathworks MATLAB and Simulink

You must have the following software installed before installing System Generator.
• One of the following versions of MATLAB from The MathWorks Inc.:
• MATLAB v7.3/Simulink v6.5 (R2006b)
• MATLAB v7.4/Simulink v6.6 (R2007a)
Note: MATLAB must be installed in a directory with no spaces (e.g., C:\MATLAB\R2007a).
• Xilinx ISE Foundation version 9.2.01i (9.2 Service Pack 1) or later, along with the full
version of the ISE Simulator.
• Xilinx ISE IP 9.2i Update 1 (I9.2i IP1)
It seemed contradict your reply that ISE webpack will be sufficient for the Spartan 3A DSP Starter platform.
But I do notice that the latest System Generator Guide version was from August 2007, at that time the Spartan DSP starter platform was not available yet. Could this be a possible reason that the System Generator required ISE foundation? Since the parts supported were only supported by ISE Foundation.

There are 2 other differences between these tools in 9.2i are:

Since my codes are almost ready and I really do not need System Generator for generating the codes, is there a more straight forward way of testing the system on hardware?
