MathWorks Targets Hardware/Software

Prototyping MATLAB and Simulink Algorithms on Xilinx Zynq and Altera SoCs

by Eric Cigan, FPGA/SoC Technical Marketing, MathWorks

The year 2011 saw a signature development in the FPGA industry – the introduction of two new programmable SoC devices. Xilinx introduced the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs, and Altera introduced the Cyclone V SoC and Arria V SoC FPGAs. These new programmable SoCs, each packing a high-performance dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPcore along with ample amounts of programmable logic, offered advantages for a plethora of applications. Now designers could enjoy the benefits of software application development on one of the industry’s most popular processors while gaining the flexibility and throughput potential from hardware acceleration on a high-speed, programmable logic fabric.  Read More

I wouldn't say it's "sloppy" in the conventional sense. Anything with a finite Q - including crystals - has some slop. As far as I know, the Q of high-quality MEMS actually competes well with crystal.

Sand 9 would point to some issues that crystal has…

Interesting example of how a sloppy Q factor can actually be useful.

For those situations where the low Q factor in MEMS isn't so useful (and there are many examples of that) - Crystal is still the answer.

Do you carefully design your oscillators or go the recipe route?

I would ask the question: what is it that you are verifying?

Digital stuff is all representable as FSMs and it should be possible to make that run fast in simulation and formally verify that the implementation is correct. However, there are lots of ana…
