The Xilinx System Generator™ for DSP is a plug-in to Simulink that enables designers to develop high-performance DSP systems for Xilinx FPGAs. Designers can design and simulate a system using MATLAB, Simulink, and Xilinx library of bit/cycle-true models. The tool will then automatically generate synthesizable Hardware Description Language (HDL) code mapped to Xilinx pre-optimized algorithms. This HDL design can then be synthesized for implementation on Xilinx FPGAs and All Programmable SoCs. As a result, designers can define an abstract representation of a system-level design and easily transform this single source code into a gate-level representation. Additionally, it provides automatic generation of a HDL testbench, which enables design verification upon implementation.
