Coding Standards and Reports

Coding standard report, lint tool scripts, and list of coding standard rules

Industry coding standards recommend using certain HDL coding guidelines. HDL Coder™ generates code that follows industry-standard rules and generates a report that shows how well your generated HDL code conforms to industry coding standards.

HDL Coder checks for conformance of your MATLAB® algorithm or Simulink® model to the HDL coding standard rules. To fix errors or warnings related to these rules, update your model design. You can customize some of the coding standard rules.
