Model Composer is a model-based design tool that enables rapid design exploration and accelerates the path to production for AMD devices through automatic code generation. Model Composer is built as an AMD toolbox 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 Vitis 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 an AMD Zynq™ device, DDR3 DRAM, and a software stack running on the Arm® processor). For more information, see Vitis Model Composer User Guide (UG1483).
