MiniZed Support Package for Simulink and Matlab 2018a - how to setup SDK?

1 view (last 30 days)
I installed the Linux sytem for the Matlab/Simuling HW/SW codesign on my Minized.
I went through the installation and setup procedure provided my, but I cannot figure out how to setup the SDK to work with Matlab/Simulink.
I tried to follow the procedure to configure the Embedded Coder Support Package for Xilinx Zynq Platform by selecting Add-Ons > Manage Add-Ons, but things have changed in the 2018a version.
I cannot figure out how to point to my SDK.
THe setup defaults to the c: drive, but my SDK is setup for the d: drive.
Any ideas on how to fix that?

Arne - Did you see the new MiniZed support package from Avnet in the Add-On Explorer? They define a MATLAB set-up process, including the need to run a minized_setup.m after the support package is installed.

Hi Noam, Yes, and I finally seem to got it working. There seems to be a bug when setting when setting up the SDK for Embedded Coder: I had to flip back and forth before I could point to my SDK, which is located on my D: drive.
Now I have a new problem: When I start the HDL Workflow Advisor, I get the following message in the Matlab window:
Warning: File C:/ProgramData/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R2018a/toolbox/target/supportpackages/zynq/registry/attributes/xilinxZynqZC701AttributeInfo.xml not found
I checked, and the directory exists, but the file "xilinxZynqZC701AttributeInfo.xml" is not inside it.
The HDL Workflow Advisor stops at "4.2 Generate Software Interface Model" with the error message:
Failed The data for the selected hardware 'MiniZed' is invalid. Select a different hardware, or contact the vendor that provides the support for the target 'MiniZed'.
So I presume that the file "xilinxZynqZC701AttributeInfo.xml" is missing and that causes the HDL Workflow Advisor to fail. I de-installed and re-installed the MiniZed HW support package several times but that did not fix it. Any thoughts?
Regards, Arne
