This paper describes how the floating point computations in MATLAB can be automatically converted to a fixed point MATLAB version of specific precision for hardware design. The techniques have been incorporated in the AcelFPGA behavioral synthesis tool (Banerjee et al., 2003) that reads in high-level descriptions of DSP applications written in MATLAB, and automatically generate synthesizable RTL models in VHDL or Verilog. Experimental results are reported with the AccelFPGA version 1.5 compiler on a set of five MATLAB benchmarks that are mapped onto the Xilinx Virtex II FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays).
