FPGA Design in the Cloud

FPGA Design in der Cloud

Source: Plunify

Plunify Cloud is build for FPGA designers to utilize the power of cloud computing.

This platform simplifies the technical and security management aspects of accessing a cloud infrastructure. With a suite of cloud-enabled tools, flows and services, any designer can quickly create and optimize FPGA applications without having to be an IT expert.

Through a transparent credits system, the cost of usage is easy to understand and estimate. And best of all: The use of the tools is billed per hour.

VIVADO™ Design Suite from Xilinx

Plunify and Xilinx announced a partnership to make Vivado™ available on the Plunify Cloud platform, which operates on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. This is the first time that full-featured FPGA software is available under an on-demand cloud model.

There are two main benefits of this partnership:

On-demand and scalability

The most obvious benefit of this partnership is the on-demand feature of cloud computing. Licenses and virtual servers are purchased as and when you need them, and only for the period you used them. Greater flexibility in resource planning and scalability enable more efficient project planning. Your own IT maintenance effort is significantly reduced.

Jump over your own shadow "One engineer, one computer"

The most overlooked benefit is the potential of (almost) unlimited computing power and licenses. FPGA teams tend to be smaller and usually do not work with huge computational farms like the ASIC designers. The typical FPGA design methodology is based on the set up of a model we call "one engineer, one computer". This model has worked well for the past decade. However, with increasing design complexity and ever larger FPGA devices, we see this approach reaching its limitations.

FPGA Expansion Pack for VIVADO™

FPGA Expansion Pack®

Source: Plunify

Making Cloud easy

The FPGA Expansion Pack for Xilinx Vivado™ makes it easy for you to use the cloud. The plugin adds cloud access functionality right in your Vivado™ toolbar.

Together with a Plunify Cloud account, this plugin enables you to conveniently offload a build in the cloud without any IT setup. You can optimize designs on dozens, even hundreds of Amazon Web Services machines at the same time.

Integrated with VIVADO™

Installing this Expansion Pack adds new buttons to your Vivado™ toolbar. Through these buttons, you can directly compile your design in the cloud, monitor and download results without leaving Vivado™

Each cloud build request results in a new design run, so that your original settings are unchanged. When finished, the compilation results can be downloaded and examined as if you had compiled them locally.

The FPGA Expansion Pack supports archiving projects, encrypting files, and securely transferring data.
