This article explains how to achieve compliance with Semiconductor Technology Academic Research Center (STARC) design style guides and the DO-254 standard using HDL Coder™ and Model-Based Design. HDL Coder generates target-independent, synthesizable Verilog® and VHDL® code from MATLAB® functions, Simulink® models, and Stateflow® charts. The generated HDL code is bit-true and cycle-accurate to source designs, and can be targeted to FPGAs and ASICs for both prototyping and production.
The article outlines major steps involved in generating standards-compliant ASIC and FPGA designs using HDL Coder, and explains how HDL Coder features can be used to enhance and facilitate critical stages of compliance testing in a hardware design workflow.
