Model Composer is a model-based design tool that enables rapid design exploration and accelerates the path to production for Xilinx devices through automatic code generation. Model Composer is built as a Xilinxtoolbox that fits into the MathWorks Simulink® software, which is an add-on product to the MATLAB® software that provides an interactive, graphical environment for modeling, simulating, analyzing and verifying system-level designs.

You can express your algorithms in Model Composer using blocks from the Model Composer library as well as user-imported custom blocks. Model Composer transforms your algorithmic specifications to packaged IP blocks using automatic optimizations and leveraging the high-level synthesis technology of Vivado HLS. Add these packaged IP into designs using the Vivado Design Suite or using IP integrator to integrate the IP into a platform (for example, a platform with a Zynq® device, DDR3 DRAM, and a software stack running on the Arm® processor). For more information, see Model Composer User Guide (UG1262).
