Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit Support from Simulink

Xilinx Spartan®-6 FPGA DSP Kit is targeted for implementation of signal processing and communications-centric designs.

Xilinx® FPGA DSP development kits from Avnet® provide complete packages of design software and development boards for rapidly implementing MATLAB® and Simulink® models on ready-to-use FPGA development boards equipped with the latest FPGAs from Xilinx. Spartan®-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit is optimized for implementation of signal processing and communications designs.

Features of Spartan-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit include the following:

  • Xilinx LX150T development board with XC6SLX150T FPGA
  • Xilinx System Generator for DSP™ for performing these tasks within Simulink:
    • Model DSP algorithms in MATLAB and Simulink.
    • Generate HDL code using a device-optimized blockset.
    • Verify FPGA designs for Xilinx devices, all from within Simulink.
  • All other necessary Xilinx hardware and software
  • Two reference designs of WCDMA digital up/down converters, provided as Simulink models and synthesizable HDL
  • Familiar DSP design flow, based on MATLAB and Simulink, for targeting FPGA hardware with automatic HDL code generation

You can also use HDL Coder and HDL Verifier with the Spartan-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit to design and implement signal processing and communications designs.

  • Generate HDL code using HDL Coder and implement in hardware with Xilinx ISE Design Suite
  • Verify implemented designs with MATLAB algorithms or Simulink models with FPGA-in-the-loop simulation
