This is the third paper in a series that introduces a MatLab/Simulink-based design flow for FPGAs at an undergraduate curriculum level. In the first paper presented at SPIE 2006 we analyzed the design tools, while in the second paper presented at SPIE 2007 we reported on the appropriate topics for the lectures and labs. In this third paper we first give an overview based on the 12-year EDA cycle on why FPGAs have now reached a level where SOPC design is possible and why MatLab/Simulink is favored by both leaders in the FPGA field: Altera (DSP builder) and Xilinx (System Generator). We then describe the Xilinx Blackboard educational material development (EMD) that has been used in Spring 2007 and Spring 2008 to teach a Xilinx System Generator based course and laboratory.
