Model Composer can compile designs into FPGA hardware that can be used in the loop with Simulink® simulations. This capability is discussed in the topic Using Hardware Co-Simulation.
As shown below, you may select Hardware Co-Simulation compilation by left-clicking the Compilation submenu control on the System Generator token dialog box, and selecting the Hardware Co-Simulation target.
The Board fields allows you to specify the development board you are targeting when you are performing the Hardware Co-Simulation compilation. You can only select a Board for Hardware Co-Simulation compilation - you cannot select a Part. When you select a Board, the Part field automatically displays the name of the Xilinx® device on the selected Board, and this part name cannot be changed.
JTAG Hardware Co-Simulation is supported for all Xilinx development boards.
The Simulink library (
generated as part of a Hardware Co-Simulation compilation is placed in the
directory you specified in the Target
directory field. This library, and the hardware
co-simulation block stored in the library, are described in Hardware Co-Simulation Blocks.
