[Model Composer] New Simulink add-on from Xilinx

Model Composer is a Xilinx toolbox that enables rapid design exploration within the MathWorks Simulink® environment and accelerates the path to production through automatic code generation that extends the Xilinx High Level Synthesis technology.

 

The Model Composer library in Simulink offers more than 80 high-level and performance-optimized blocks including application-specific reVISION libraries for computer vision and HLS libraries for Math, Trigonometry and Linear Algebra. You can also import your own custom blocks written in C and C++, which are subsequently processed by Vivado HLS. With support for vectors, matrices and easier integration with Simulink and add-on toolbox features, algorithm engineers can build system-level designs and work at a higher-level of abstraction.

 

Through automatic code generation, you can export your design into

 

  • Vivado HLS ( as synthesizable C/C++ code with automatic insertion of optimization directives)
  • Vivado IP Integrator (as packaged RTL IP)
  • System Generator for DSP

Add board to Model Composer

Hi

 

I install my board (Zybo Z7-20) files to <VIVADO_INSTALL_DIR>/data/boards/board_files. I can select my board in vivado and system generator, BUT I can't see it in Model Composer Hub (in Device tab). can you help me?

 

Thanks

Re: Add board to Model Composer

Hello 

 

To view your custom board in the Model Composer Hub (Device Tab) please do the following

 

  • Launch Model Composer
  • In the MATLAB Command Prompt, please enter the following 

>> [status, boardTable, partTable] =  xmcHubReloadDeviceInfo;

 

  • After the function executes successfully, double check that your new board or device is in the "boardTable", or "partTable" list.
  • Then, please restart Model Composer.
  • You should see the new board or device in the Hub

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

 

Thanks
