Get Started with HDL Coder

Generate VHDL and Verilog code for FPGA and ASIC designs

HDL Coder™ generates portable, synthesizable VHDL® and Verilog® code from MATLAB® functions, Simulink® models, and Stateflow® charts. The generated HDL code can be used for FPGA programming or ASIC prototyping and design.

HDL Coder provides a workflow advisor that automates the programming of Xilinx®, Microsemi®, and Intel® FPGAs. You can control HDL architecture and implementation, highlight critical paths, and generate hardware resource utilization estimates. HDL Coder provides traceability between your Simulink model and the generated Verilog and VHDL code, enabling code verification for high-integrity applications adhering to DO-254 and other standards.

Support for industry standards is available through IEC Certification Kit (for ISO 26262 and IEC 61508).
