13.2 System Generator for DSP - Why is there no output from Viterbi v7.0 in Simulink simulation?


I am using Xilinx System Generator for DSP design tool to build a hardware core using the Viterbi Decoder 7.0 block, but all the outputs are always NAN (even the data valid signal), and I do not see any output on the WaveScope window (for example).

What am I missing?


Viterbi v7.0 requires a valid license to run Simulink simulations. You can obtain an evaluation license from the Viterbi product page: http://www.xilinx.com/content/xilinx/en/products/intellectual-property/viterbi_decoder.html. Click Evaluate on the left of the page.

For System Generator for DSP Release Notes for other versions, see (Xilinx Answer 29595).
