Hardware Implementation Pane: Altera Cyclone V SoC Development Kit and Arrow SoCKit Development Hardware Boards

To configure hardware parameters for Altera® Cyclone® V SoC development kit, or Arrow SoCKit development boards, follow these steps:

  1. In the Simulink® Editor, select Simulation > Model Configuration Parameters.

  2. In the Configuration Parameter dialog box, click Hardware Implementation.

  3. Set the Hardware board parameter to Altera Cyclone V SoC development kit and click Apply.

  4. The parameter values under Hardware board settings are automatically populated to their default values.

    You can optionally adjust these parameters for your particular use case.

  5. Click Apply to apply the changes.
