Vitis or Vivado HLS

Jump to solution

Hello, quick question for the forum members. I recently download Vivado 19.2 and with the installation Vivado 19.2 HLS was installed. Beyond the AI stuff what does Vitis get me that Vivado HLS gives me? I ask because the Vitis is a 30G download.

Thank you,

Joe

It supports both Alveo acceleration cards and embedded platforms. 

You can take a look at the user guide.

Yes, when you install the Vitis tools, it includes Vivado. 

To generate the final FPGA binary, the Vitis Compiler (v++) invokes HLS and subsequently the underlying Vivado Design Suite to run synthesis and implementation. Vitis tools help abstract the implementation details from the user, who does not need any prior experience with Vivado to design accelerated applications.

Is Vitis required to program the ARM processors on an MPSoc? Is Vitis only for accelorators?
