Create a new custom compilation target by running the following helper function.

xilinx.environment.addCompilationTarget(target_name, directory_name)

For example, consider the following command:

xilinx.environment.addCompilationTarget('Impl', 'U:\demo')
Figure 1. Helper Function

When you enter this command in the MATLAB Command Window as shown above, the following happens:

  1. A folder is created named Impl/@Impl in U:\demo.
  2. Inside the folder, a template class file Impl is created (Impl.m), which is derived from the base class xilinx_compilation. At this point, if no modifications are made to the file, the newly created Impl compilation target acts the same as the HDL Netlist compilation target. The content of the Impl.m file is shown in the following figure.

  3. The helper function then adds U:\demo\Impl to the MATLAB path, so that the new class Impl can be discovered by MATLAB.
Note: Be aware that the target_name cannot contain spaces. After the class is created, you can add spaces to the target_name property of the class.
