Main Content


Design and develop the external peripheral components, from GPIO to integrated video stream components, of an SoC application

Create Simulink® models with simulations of the peripherals available on SoC devices. Connect peripherals to the software algorithms and hardware user-logic subsystems of an SoC application model. Add asynchronous communication and data capture simulation to the model using I/O device blocks with event message signals. Capture data from peripherals on hardware boards in deployed models to use in simulation.
