Code Generation Fundamentals

HDL code generation startup, language selection, HDL code generation scripts

The Filter Design HDL Coder™ workflow automates the implementation of filter designs in HDL. First, design a filter, either manually or by using DSP System Toolbox™ tools Filter Designer or Filter Builder. Then, use the Generate HDL dialog box or the generatehdl function to configure code generation options and generate a VHDL or Verilog implementation of the design. This workflow enables you to fine-tune algorithms and models through rapid prototyping and experimentation, while spending less time on HDL implementation. See Starting Filter Design HDL Coder.
