Abstract

Most hardware designers use Simulink as a design platform because it contains many components that have hardware equivalent. In addition to that, it supports Matlab Co-simulation and hardware synthesis. Simulink is seen as a good platform for low complexity systems that do not require trimming analysis during the verification phase. Hardware design for complex systems such as MIMO-OFDM needs an immediate manual conversion from Matlab to RTL-VHDL, and the communication between Matlab and FPGA must be managed directly through the Universal Asynchronous Receive and Transmit (UART). This paper proposes an integrated architecture for a UART module to be used with MIMO-OFDM hardware platform, the purpose of this module is to enable the communication between Matlab and FPGA board. It consumes nearly 1% from the overall resources of the target FPGA.
