SDAccel—Xilinx’s development environment for accelerating cloud-based applications using C, C++, or OpenCL—is now available on Amazon’s AWS EC2 F1 instance. (Formal announcement here.) The Amazon EC2 F1 compute instance allows you to create custom hardware accelerators for your application using cloud-based server hardware that incorporates multiple Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P FPGAs. SDAccel automates the acceleration of software applications by building application-specific FPGA kernels for the AWS EC2 F1. You can also use HDLs including Verilog and VHDL to define hardware accelerators in SDAccel. With this release, you can access SDAccel through the AWS FPGA developer AMI.
