SoC Generation Workflows

You can deploy an SoC model on an SoC device by using one of these workflows.

  • Use the SoC Builder tool to guide you through the steps required to build hardware and software executables, load them on an SoC device, and execute.

  • Use the socExportReferenceDesign function to export a reference design from an SoC model, and then integrate your IP code to the reference design and deploy to an SoC device using the HDL Workflow Advisor tool.

Both workflows require the SoC Blockset™ and HDL Coder™ products.

Use SoC Builder tool to deploy SoC model on SoC device

If you are authoring an SoC model from scratch using SoC Blockset features, first simulate and refine the model as needed. Then, use the SoC Builder tool to guide you through the workflow of checking, building, loading, and executing your design on an SoC device. For an example of using the SoC Builder tool, see Streaming Data from Hardware to Software.

Use exportReferenceDesign function to deploy SoC model on SoC device

If you are authoring an IP core using the HDL Coder custom IP core generation workflow, you can create a custom reference design and integrate the IP core into that design. Use the socExportReferenceDesign function to export a reference design from an SoC Blockset model. For an example of using the socExportReferenceDesign function, see Export Custom Reference Design.
