Mapping to a floating-point library enables you to synthesize your floating-point design without having to do floating-point to fixed-point conversion. Eliminating the floating-point to fixed-point conversion step reduces the loss of data precision, and enables you to model a wider dynamic range. When generating code for your Simulink® model.
If your model design uses
types, use FPGA floating-point target libraries. HDL Coder™ can map your design to Altera or Xilinx FPGA floating-point libraries.
