Hardware Targeting Basics
When you target hardware by using HDL Coder™, you can follow one workflow with two different starting points, depending on your goal:
To rapidly prototype an off the shelf, pre-existing hardware platform, prototype and deploy your HDL algorithm for your FPGA using a pre-existing board and reference design and start the Hardware-Software Co-Design workflow.
For a production workflow that targets a custom device, create a custom hardware platform. Then follow the Hardware-Software Co-Design workflow.
For more details, see Targeting FPGA & SoC Hardware Overview and Hardware-Software Co-Design Workflow for SoC Platforms.
