Design and develop the shared memory and data register components of an SoC application
SoC Blockset™ enables simulation and evaluation of shared memory transactions in Simulink®. To include a memory system in your SoC model, configure a memory controller for the desired number of memory channels, and then connect the controller to memory channel blocks for arbitrating and handling memory traffic.
SoC Blockset enables the simulation and evaluation of shared memory transactions in Simulink. Visualize post-simulation performance and bandwidth metrics before deploying to SoC device by using the Logic Analyzer app.
