Find Blocks That Support HDL Code Generation


In the Simulink® library browser, you can find libraries of blocks supported for HDL code generation in the HDL Coder, Communications Toolbox HDL Support, DSP System Toolbox HDL Support block libraries, and others.

To create a library of HDL-supported blocks from all your installed products, enter hdllib (HDL Coder) at the MATLAB® command line. This command requires an HDL Coder™ license.

You can also view blocks that are supported for HDL code generation in documentation by filtering the block reference list. Click Blocks in the blue bar at the top of the Help window, then select the HDL code generation check box at the bottom of the left column. The blocks are listed in their respective products. You can use the table of contents in the left column to navigate between products and categories.

Refer to the "Extended Capabilities > HDL Code Generation" section of each block page for block implementations, properties, and restrictions for HDL code generation.

System Objects

To find System objects supported for HDL code generation, see Predefined System Objects (HDL Coder).
