Xilinx SDSoC/SDAccel/HLS to Vitis - Silica


New programming methods are offered for FPGA and SoC technologies, which also enable software developers to program hardware without having to master hardware programming languages. SDx tools from XILINX addresses the software developer and these methods will get a new and improved concept with Vitis. The online seminar gives you an overview of these tools and shows in which applications and platforms the various tools can be used. The elementary tool High-Level-Synthesis (HLS) offers language support for C/C ++ and System-C and can generate optimized hardware code. The SDSoC tool is used for Zynq SoC/MPSoC technologies to move the sequential processor code to the programmable logic for acceleration purpose. SDAccel can be used for all XILINX FPGA devices in order to use an OpenCL kernel to program a XILINX hardware platform for server or computer based hardware accelerators. And with Vitis, Xilinx has recently combined these acceleration tools presented here in a freely available software framework to set a new standard that makes it easier now for the SW developer to access many methods of hardware acceleration.

Finally, we show you a Vivado generated Zynq MPSoC PS/PL design imported to the Vitis development environment. This seminar helps you to better understand the new concepts of Xilinx tools for software developers.
