HDL Coder Support Package for NI FPGA Hardware

HDL Coder™ Support Package for NI FPGA Hardware enables generating bitfiles for NI FPGA hardware from HDL Coder by providing LabVIEW FPGA integration.

This workflow allows you to perform the following actions:

  • Map algorithm I/O to onboard interfaces
  • Generate HDL code
  • Generate a LabVIEW FPGA project and create a bitfile. Once created, you can upload this file to NI FPGA Hardware.

Note: This support package is functional for R2022b and later releases listed in the table below

Compile Server Considerations

Known Limitations

  • Only supports VHDL.
  • No support for double precision ports (single precision is supported).
  • Only registers CPU-FPGA communication through Read/Write controls.
  • No support for purely combinatorial circuits, such as circuits without clocks.
  • Cannot connect array and complex ports to board I/O.
  • Post code generation ports in VHDL entity that do not have a corresponding model port(e.g., clk_enable) will be mapped to registers.
  • Save and Load Restore Point does not work.
  • Auto-restore last exited session does not work.
  • Only English LabVIEW is supported.
