Supported Third-Party Tools and Hardware

Third-Party Synthesis Tools and Version Support

The HDL Workflow Advisor is tested with the following third-party FPGA synthesis tools:

  • Intel® Quartus Prime 16.1

  • Xilinx® Vivado® Design Suite 2016.4

  • Xilinx ISE 14.7

To use third-party synthesis tools with HDL Coder™, a supported synthesis tool must be installed, and the synthesis tool executable must be on the system path. For details, see Tool Setup.

FPGA-in-the-Loop Hardware

The FPGAs supported for FPGA-in-the-loop simulation with HDL Verifier™ are listed in the HDL Verifier documentation.

You can also add custom FPGA boards using the FPGA Board Manager. See FPGA Board Customization for details.

For FPGA-in-the-Loop or Customization for USRP® Device using the HDL Workflow Advisor, a supported synthesis tool must be installed, and the synthesis tool executable must be on the system path. For details, see Tool Setup.

FPGA Turnkey Hardware

The following hardware is supported for the FPGA Turnkey workflow:

  • Altera® Arria® II GX FPGA development kit

  • Altera Cyclone® III FPGA development kit

  • Altera Cyclone IV GX FPGA development kit

  • Altera DE2–115 development and education board

  • XUP Atlys Spartan-6 development board

  • Xilinx Spartan-3A DSP 1800A development board

  • Xilinx Spartan-6 SP605 development board

  • Xilinx Virtex-4 ML401 development board

  • Xilinx Virtex-4 ML402 development board

  • Xilinx Virtex-5 ML506 development board

  • Xilinx Virtex-6 ML605 development board

For FPGA development boards that have more than one FPGA device, only one such device can be used with FPGA Turnkey.

Supported FPGA Device Families for Board Customization

You can also add custom FPGA boards using the FPGA Board Manager. HDL Coder supports the following FPGA device families for board customization; that is, when you create your own board definition file. See FPGA Board Customization (HDL Verifier).
