Xilinx Vivado Design Suite HLx Editions 2016.3 | 21.2 Gb
Xilinx, Inc. has released update for Vivado Design Suite HLx Editions 2016, enabling a new ultra high productivity approach for designing All Programmable SoCs, FPGAs, and the creation of reusable platforms.
These new HLx Editions include HL System Edition, HL Design Edition and HL WebPACK Edition. All HLx Editions include Vivado High-Level Synthesis (HLS) including C/C++ libraries, Vivado IP Integrator (IPI), LogicCORE IP subsystems, and the full Vivado implementation tool suite to enable mainstream users to readily adopt the most productive and advanced C and IP-based design flows. When coupled with the new UltraFast High-Level Productivity Design Methodology Guide, users can realize a 10-15X productivity gain over traditional approaches. The HLx Edition is available as a no-cost upgrade to the Vivado Design Suite.
Ultra High Productivity for Creating and Programming Reusable Platforms
Over the last 4 years, leading edge Xilinx customers have pioneered and matured the enabling C and IP-based design technologies and methodologies now included in the HLx Editions, and proven the 10-15X productivity potential. To realize this productivity, these customers adopted all or a subset of the following;
- C-based design and optimized reuse,
- reuse of IP subsystems,
- integration automation, and accelerated design closure.
Unlike tradition RTL-based design where the majority of the design effort is spent in the backend of the design process, C and IP-based design enables vastly superior design reuse to speed creation, rapid design exploration for better micro-architectures, replaces error prone manual C to RTL conversion, eliminates time and errors while integrating C and RTL-based IP, and dramatically shortens verification time. Using high levels of abstraction, customers have found that they can quickly get overall better or equal Quality of Results (performance, power, utilization).
To enable these high productivity flows, the HLx Editions include Vivado HLS, Vivado IPI, LogicCORE IP subsystems, and the full Vivado implementation tool suite. In addition, Xilinx and its Alliance ecosystem are continuously expanding market-specific C libraries such as OpenCV for video and image processing and Machine Learning for Automotive Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Data Center applications. Xilinx's new LogiCORE IP subsystems are highly configurable, market-tailored building blocks that integrate up to 80 individual IP cores, software drivers, design examples, and test benches. New IP subsystems are available for Ethernet, PCIe, video processing, image sensor processing, and OTN development. These IP subsystems are based on industry standards such as AMBA AXI 4 interconnect protocol, IEEE P1735 encryption and IP-XACT to enable interoperability with Xilinx and Alliance member IP and to accelerate integration.
The combination of C-based IP and pre-packaged IP subsystems are rapidly combined leveraging Vivado IP Integrator for integration automation. Vivado IPI's integration automation provides a device and platform aware, interactive environment that supports intelligent auto-connection of key IP interfaces, one-click IP subsystem generation, real-time DRCs, and interface change propagation, combined with a powerful debug capability. The platform aware intelligence, can preconfigure the Zynq SoCs and MPSoCs processing system with the correct peripherals, drivers, and memory map to support the target board. Design teams can now rapidly identify, reuse, and integrate both software and hardware IP, targeting the ARM processing systems and high-performance FPGA logic.
HLx Complements SDx for Creating and Deploying Platforms
HLx speeds the creation, modification, and programming of All Programmable platforms for hardware engineers, complementing the Xilinx SDx Development Environments (SDSoC, SDAccel and SDNet) which are tailored for software and systems engineers. The SDx family of development environments enable software-defined programming of HLx generated platforms using a mix of C, C++, OpenCL, and the emerging P4 language for packet processing. HLx and SDx represent Xilinx's new era of design enablement solutions for developing smarter, connected and differentiated systems leveraging a new era of All Programmable devices including Zynq SoCs, MPSoCs, ASIC-class FPGAs and 3D ICs.
Release notes: HERE
Xilinx develops All Programmable technologies and devices, beyond hardware to software, digital to analog, and single to multiple die in 3D ICs.Â These industry leading devices are coupled with a next-generation design environment and IP to serve a broad range of customer needs, from programmable logic to programmable systems integration.
