HDL Verifier Support Packages for FPGA Boards

The FPGA board support packages contain the definition files for all the supported boards for FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL) simulation, data capture, or MATLAB AXI master. You can download any or all the FPGA board support packages. Before you can use one of the features that connects to the FPGA board, download at least one of the FPGA board support packages or customize your own board definition file.

You can download FPGA board support packages from within the HDL workflow advisor, or the FIL wizard, by clicking Launch Board Manager, and selecting Get More Boards. Or, to customize a board definition file, see FPGA Board Manager. You can also install offline.

After you have downloaded an FPGA board support package, you can use FPGA-in-the-Loop Simulation.

Install Support Package Offline

To install the board support packages without an Internet connection, first download the packages on a computer that does have an Internet connection.

  1. On the computer with the Internet connection, start MATLAB®.

  2. Select Add-Ons > Get Hardware Support Packages.

  3. Select Download from Internet.

  4. Select the board support package you want to download. Click Next and follow the installer prompts. The last screen displays where you can find the downloaded file.

  5. Copy the downloaded file to a shared network drive or removable media, such as a USB drive.

Then, on the computer where you want to install the board support packages:

  1. Copy the downloaded file to the host computer.

  2. Start MATLAB.

  3. Select Add-Ons > Get Hardware Support Packages.

  4. Select Install from folder.

  5. Specify the path to the folder where the downloaded files are located.

  6. Click Next, and follow the installer prompts to install the board support package. If you do actually have an Internet connection, you are prompted to log in to your MathWorks® account.
