High Level Implementation Methodologies of DSP Module using FPGA and System Generator

Abstract

This paper presents the high level implementation methodologies of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) module by using the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) andintegrated software environments (ISE) with the System Generator programs. The shortest and efficient paths to design a Xilinx Vertix-4 FPGA using MATLAB, ModelSim, synplify Pro software tools is introduced. The floating point design in MATLAB has been moved to fixed point values using Xilinx DSP system generator software a model based approach associated with assistance software from Mathworks and Synplicity. The obtained result shows an important utilization in FPGAarea.
