(Workshop) Embedded & Accelerating App w/Vitis Unified Software

(Workshop) Accelerating Applications with Vitis Unified Software Environment 


Workshop Description

This workshop demonstrates the tools and techniques required for software design and development using the the Vitis™ unified software platform.

Learn how to migrate from SDK and develop, debug, and profile new or existing C/C++ and RTL applications in the Vitis™ unified software environment targeting both embedded and data center (DC) applications. Also learn how to run designs on the Xilinx Alveo™ accelerator card using Nimbix Cloud.

The emphasis of this course is on:
▪ Reviewing the basics of using the Vitis platform
▪ Developing software applications using the Vitis platform
▪ Customizing board support packages (BSPs) for resource access and management of the Xilinx Standalone library
▪ Demonstrating the Vitis environment GUI flow and makefile flow
for both DC and embedded applications
▪ Describing the Vitis platform execution model and XRT
▪ Describing kernel development using C/C++ and RTL
▪ Utilizing the Vitis analyzer tool to analyze reports
▪ Explaining the design methodology to optimize a design
▪ Building a software application using the OpenCL API and the Linux-based Xilinx runtime (XRT) to schedule the hardware kernels and control data movement on an embedded processor platform
▪ Building a software application using the OpenCL™ API to run hardware kernels on Alveo accelerator cards

Level – Embedded Software 3
