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 Simulink® model or MATLAB® algorithm 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.
