Altera DE2 Support from Simulink

Digital circuit development platform for hardware design and verification

You can use Simulink®, HDL Coder™, HDL Verifier™, and Stateflow® with the Altera® DE2-115 Development and Education board to teach hardware design and verification for signal processing and embedded systems. The Altera DE2-115 board provides a low-cost, ready-to-use development platform based on the Cyclone IV FPGA, including onboard SDRAM memory, a gigabit Ethernet connection, and integrated audio and video ports.

You can explore concepts in signal processing, communications, and embedded systems as you develop real-world audio and video applications using this turnkey FPGA workflow:

  • Create algorithms to simulate and visualize system behavior using MATLAB, Simulink, and Stateflow.
  • Generate HDL code using HDL Coder and program the Altera DE2-115 board with Altera Quartus II.
  • Execute HDL code in real time using the Altera DE2-115 board.
  • Perform design optimization through resource sharing, retiming, and streaming using HDL Coder.
  • Complete FPGA-in-the-loop simulation on the Altera DE2-115 board using HDL Verifier.
