The HDL configuration component is an internal data structure that HDL Coder™ creates and attaches to a model. This component lets you view the HDL Code Generation pane in the Configurations Parameters dialog box and set HDL code generation options. Normally, you do not need to interact with the HDL configuration component. However, there are situations where you might want to add or remove the HDL configuration component:
A model that was created on a system that did not have HDL Coder installed does not have the HDL configuration component attached. In this case, you might want to add the HDL configuration component to the model.
If a previous user removed the HDL configuration component, you might want to add the component back to the model.
If a model will be running on some systems that have HDL Coder installed, and on other systems that do not, you might want to keep the model consistent between both environments. If so, you might want to remove the HDL configuration component from the model.
To add the HDL Coder configuration component to a model, In the Simulink® Toolstrip, on the Apps tab, select HDL Coder. The HDL Code tab appears. On the HDL Code tab, select Settings > Add HDL Coder Configuration to Model.
To remove the HDL Coder configuration component from a model, on the HDL Code tab, select Settings > Remove HDL Configuration from Model.
