The DSP Builder library shortens DSP design cycles by helping users create the hardware representation of a DSP design in an algorithm-friendly development environment. With the library, algorithm and system designers can share a common development platform.
Designers can use the blocks in the DSP Builder library to create a hardware implementation of a Simulink system modeled in sampled time. The DSP Builder library contains bit and cycle accurate Simulink fixed-point blocks, which cover basic operations such as arithmetic or storage functions, as well as complex functions such as forward error correction or filtering. The DSP Builder library SignalCompiler block reads Simulink model files (.mdl) and writes out VHDL files and Tcl scripts for hardware implementation and simulation. This HDL design can then be synthesized for implementation in Altera APEX II, APEX E, FLEX 10K, FLEX 6000, and Mercury device families. In addition to MATLAB and Simulink, the DSP System Toolbox, Signal Processing Toolbox, and Communications System Toolbox are highly recommended.
