Targeting MATLAB Algorithms to FPGAs

Robert Anderson, MathWorks
Udayan Sinha, Altera Corp.

Learn how you can target algorithms written in MATLAB to Altera FPGAs using HDL Coder. In this webinar, see how this workflow supports each phase of the FPGA design process including:

  • Converting floating-point MATLAB algorithms to fixed-point
  • Generating VHDL and Verilog code directly from MATLAB using HDL Coder
  • Optimizing the FPGA implementation for performance or resource utilization
  • Integrating the HDL code into designs using Quartus II and Qsys
  • Verifying the FPGA implementation in hardware with FPGA-in-the-loop

We also show how design teams can use a language-based FPGA design flow as well as how to integrate this workflow into Model-Based Design.
