launchApp

System object: hdlverifier.FPGADataReader
Package: hdlverifier

Capture data from live FPGA into MATLAB workspace, interactively

Syntax

launchApp(DC)

Description

launchApp(DC) opens the FPGA Data Capture app, which captures data from a design running on an FPGA and returns it to the MATLAB® workspace. The app is a wrapper on the generated FPGADataReader System object™. Changes that you make in the app are saved in the properties of the System object.

You can configure the data types of the returned values, and set up a trigger condition to control when the data is captured. You must have previously generated the customized data capture components, using FPGA Data Capture Component Generator. You must also have integrated the generated IP code into your project and deployed it to the FPGA. The app communicates with the FPGA over a JTAG cable. Make sure that the JTAG cable is connected between the board and the host computer. See FPGA Data Capture.

Input Arguments

expand all

Customized data capture object created using the FPGA Data Capture Component Generator app.

Examples

Open the App

Before you open the FPGA Data Capture app, you must have previously generated the customized data capture components, using the FPGA Data Capture Component Generator app. You must also have integrated the generated IP code into your project and deployed it to the FPGA. The app communicates with the FPGA over a JTAG cable. Make sure that the JTAG cable is connected between the board and the host computer.

Create a data capture object using your generated System object. Then open the FPGA Data Capture app.
