System Generator for DSP™ is the industry’s leading architecture-level* design tool to define, test and implement high-performance DSP algorithms on Xilinx devices. Designed as an add-on toolbox for Simulink®, System Generator for DSP takes advantage of pre-existing IP optimized for the FPGA fabric, which can be parameterized by the user to meet the quality and cost goals of the algorithms. System Generator for DSP features combined with the benefits of a rich simulation and verification environment offered by Simulink® enables the creation of production-quality DSP algorithms in a fraction of time compared to traditional RTL development times.
For algorithm engineers with little to no prior experience with Xilinx FPGAs, Xilinx now offers a new toolbox Xilinx Model Composer that enables a higher-level of abstraction for design within Simulink, access to Xilinx-optimized software libraries for vision-based applications among others, faster simulation speeds and tighter integration with Vivado HLS and SDx environments.
Comprehensive Device Support: Kintex®-7, Virtex®-7, Zynq®-7000, Artix®-7, Kintex UltraScale™, Kintex UltraScale+,Virtex UltraScale, Virtex UltraScale+, Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC
