Hardware Implementation Pane: Xilinx Zynq ZedBoard

To configure hardware parameters for Xilinx® Zynq® ZedBoard™, follow these steps:

  1. In the Simulink® Editor, select Simulation > Model Configuration Parameters.

  2. In the Configuration Parameter dialog box, click Hardware Implementation.

  3. Set the Hardware board parameter to either:

    • Xilinx Zynq ZC702 evaluation kit

    • Xilinx Zynq ZC706 evaluation kit

    • ZedBoard

    Then, click Apply.

    The parameter values under Hardware board settings are automatically populated to their default values.

  4. If you chose Xilinx Zynq ZC706 evaluation kit or ZedBoard, set the Feature set for selected hardware board to Simulink or Embedded Coder Hardware Support Package and click Apply.

    You can optionally adjust these parameters for your particular use case.
