I am trying to install "Vivado Design Suite - HLx Editions" as a synthesis tool for use with HDL Coder, HDL Verifier, or other HDL-related toolboxes such as SoC Blockset or Deep Learning/Vision/Wireless HDL Toolbox. After launching the Xilinx web installer, I can select between the following three Vivado editions:
  • Vivado HL WebPACK
  • Vivado HL Design Edition
  • Vivado HL System Edition
Which edition do I need to install for use with HDL Coder or HDL Verifier?

All three Vivado editions mentioned above will work with our products.
Usually, either the WebPACK or Design Edition of Vivado will be sufficient. Which of the two editions you need depends on the FPGA device that you are targeting:
Additional notes:
  • Xilinx products that are not required for MathWorks HDL workflows include "Model Composer", "System Generator for DSP", and "Vivado HLS".
  • "Vivado Lab Edition" is not supported for MathWorks HDL workflows.
  • The new "Xilinx Vivado ML" product is not yet supported as of MATLAB R2021b.
To find out which Vivado version number is supported with each MATLAB release, please refer to the following MATLAB Answers post: Which versions of Xilinx Vivado are supported with which release of HDL Coder?
