I want to generate a simple Matlab function in Verilog. There is such a code.
persistent example
if isempty(example)
example=zeros(N, 1);
end
But when I try to do this in Workflow Advisor, this error appears in the Fixed-Point Conversion section.
Variable 'example' is not scalar. Non-scalar types are not supported for derived range analysis.
How can I fix this? How can I synthesize a simple array in HDL? Thanks.

See the attached sample code that demonstorates (line 15, 16) on how create large arrays.
I am assuming you are using MATLAB to HDL and not MATLAB function block in Simulink. If it is MATLAB to HDL workflow you can follow the steps below. If it is Simulink to HDL you need to plug in the above function into a MATLAB function block and run HDL Codegeneration steps.
For MATLAB to HDL here are the compilation steps.
fixptCfg = coder.config('fixpt');
fixptCfg.TestBenchName = 'mlhdlc_heq_24a_tb';
cfg = coder.config('hdl');
cfg.TestBenchName = 'mlhdlc_heq_24a_tb';
codegen -float2fixed fixptCfg -config cfg mlhdlc_heq_24a -launchreport
The above command runs fixed-point conversion (optionally) and HDL Code generation
