Computer Aided Implementation using Xilinx System Generator (English)
The development in electronics increases the demand for good design methods and design tools in the field of electrical engeneering. To improve their design methods Ericsson Microwave Systems AB is interested in using computer tools to create a link between the specification and the implementation of a digital system in a FPGA.
Xilinx System Generator for DSP is a tool for implementing a model of a digital signalprocessing algorithm in a Xilinx FPGA. To evaluate Xilinx System Generator two testcases has been designed.
The testcases are selected to represent the FPGA designs made at Ericsson Microwave Systems. The testcases show that Xilinx System Generator can be used to effectivly implement a model made in Simulink in a FPGA from Xilinx. The result of the implementation is comparable to the implementation of VHDL code written by hand.
The use of tools for implementation of a model in hardware cause change in the design methods used at Ericsson Microwave Systems. The higher level of abstraction introduced by System Generator results in the design decisions made at system level having a higher impact on the final realization.
