After having read a comment by Yongfeng here, I'm more confused that I already was about the compatibility between the different Matlab and Xilinx tools and their versions.
I understand that it has to be clearly distinguished between two different ways to set up the integration:
- Simulink + System Generator
- Simulink + Target support package + Xilinx toolchain
Following Yongfeng's comment, System Generator wouldn't (1) be supported at all in R2014b?? Does this mean support has been removed, and that I need to use a previous Matlab? This seems â€œstrangeâ€. Or does it just mean that it won't work with Vivado 2014.3/.4? Looking here, the information seems contradictory. Regarding to the second approach (2), according to R2014b release notes, Vivado is supported now (instead of ISE). So should this work with 2014.3/.4? After looking at the Vivado Release notes , I'm even more confused. As far as I know System Generator (1) works with R2013b/2014a and 2014.2. And the previous setup with Target Support Package (2) (enabling PiL) was for ISE >14.4 and SDK >2013.4, right?
So: the specific question would be (as the previous setupsâ€™ compatibilities arenâ€™t really relevant): which are the latest usable versions for both mentioned setups?
A clarification of these points would be probably greatly appreciated by many people, and certainly by me. Unfortunately, I see several open issues related to HDL generation, IP cores and Vivado integration in the forums.
Best regards and thanks in advance.
