Controlling Riviera-PRO from MATLAB® Mariusz Grabowski, FPGA Design and Verification Engineer Like(0) Comments (0) Riviera-PRO provides a bidirectional MATLAB co-simulation interface that allows the integration of the MathWorks' system-level computing environment with Aldec's HDL-based simulation environment. The interface enables engineers to verify that their ASIC/FPGA implementations match system specifications. Riviera-PRO can either act as a master or slave in co-simulation with MATLAB. Slave mode enables MATLAB users to play with a bit-accurate model of their IP without even having to leave the MATLAB environment. Riviera-PRO's MATLAB interface supports the flow in which you can keep MATLAB as a main environment and can call Riviera-PRO for HDL simulations. This way, you may not even need to deal with the HDL simulation environment at all (given your design-specific interface implemented by someone else at the HDL side).
