Custom Timing Database Directory

Path to load custom timing

Since R2021b

Model Configuration Pane: Report


Specify the path to load your custom timing .mat files.


This option is disabled if you do not select the Generate high-level timing critical path report.


' ' (Default)

Specify the path to load your custom timing .mat files.


To set this parameter, use hdlset_param or makehdltb. To view the parameter value, use hdlget_param.

For example, if you want to set the path to your custom timing database file, enter:

myDUT = gcb;
timingpath = '/timingfiles/customtimingreport.mat';

hdlset_param (myDUT, 'TimingDatabaseDirectory', timingpath);


If the Custom Timing Database Directory is empty or the target configuration has no timing databases, by default, HDL Coder™ uses timing databases for the Xilinx® Virtex® -7, speed grade -1 device to generate the critical path estimation report.
