Set up and connect your hardware boards
Hardware boards supported by MathWorks® require additional setup steps to connect to MATLAB® and Simulink® software. The Hardware Setup tool guides you through the hardware setup process. Use this tool to configure a target hardware board for use with FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL), FPGA data capture, and AXI manager over the JTAG, Ethernet, and PCI Express® interfaces. For the full list of supported boards and interfaces, see Supported Xilinx FPGA Boards.
The hardware setup process for the HDL Verifier™ Support Package for Xilinx® FPGA Boards comprises these steps:
Specify a hardware board and interface.
Configure the network interface card in the host computer (for the Ethernet interface only).
Copy or transfer the compatible SD card image files for the hardware board to an SD card drive path (for the Ethernet interface on Zynq® SoC boards only).
Configure your hardware board to start up from the SD card (for the Ethernet interface on Zynq SoC boards only).
Install the PCIe driver on the host computer (for the PCI Express interface only).
Connect your hardware board to the host computer (for the Ethernet interface on Zynq SoC boards only).
Verify the connection between the host computer and the hardware board.
Open the Hardware Setup
In the install window, at the end of the installation process, click the Setup Now button.
After installing the HDL Verifier Support Package for Xilinx FPGA Boards, use Get and Manage Add-Ons. When the installation is complete, in the Add-On Manager, click the Gear icon .
