Setting up MATLAB with Atlys Spartan 6 FPGA for Hardware Co-simulation
In my previous articles I discussed how to perform a hardware co-simulation using MATLAB, by using Digilent Atlys Spartan 6 FPGA development kit. But many of my colleagues had the problem of setting up MATLAB for Hardware co-simulation. With a help of a friend of mine, we managed to configure MATLAB for hardware co-simulation. In this short article I am going to share my experience on setting up MATLAB for hardware co-simulation with Atlys Spartan 6 Development Kit.
First of all you need to download Atlys plug-in from Xilix website. Go to this URL and download Lab source files.
Extract the Zip archive. Then Extract atlys_board_plugin.zip file.
Copy the content to
[Xilinx Installation Directory]\1X.X\ISE_DS\ISE\sysgen\plugins\compilation\Hardware Co-Simulation
As you can see in the picture given below, when you double click on system generator block, Atlys board will appear in the target device list of Simulink.
Now your MATLAB is ready for hardware co simulation. You can find how to perform hardware co-simulation using my previous article. Thank you very much for reading.
