Native Floating Point
HDL Coder™ native floating-point technology can generate HDL code from your floating-point design. These are some of the key features:
Generation of target-independent HDL code that you can deploy on any FPGA or ASIC.
Support for the full range of IEEE-754 features including denormal numbers, exceptions, and rounding modes.
Extensive support for math and trigonometric blocks.
Floating-point designs have better precision, higher dynamic range, and a shorter development cycle than fixed-point designs. If your design has complex math and trigonometric operations, use native floating-point technology.
