Xilinx: SDAccel development environment available for Amazon EC2 F1 instances

Xilinx announced that its software defined development environment, SDAccel, is now available on Amazon Web Services for use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) F1 instances. Amazon EC2 F1 instances provide reconfigurable, custom-hardware acceleration with 16nm Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs enabling customers to meet the demands of compute-intensive workloads like data analytics, video processing and machine learning.

With the availability of the SDAccel Development Environment for Amazon EC2 F1 instances, software developers less familiar with FPGAs can now get up to 50x better performance for their workloads. SDAccel automates the acceleration of software application written in C, C++ or OpenCL by building application-specific FPGA kernels for Amazon EC2 F1. SDAccel also supports traditional hardware designers writing optimized accelerators in lower-level hardware description languages such as VHDL Verilog.

SDAccel is accessible through the AWS FPGA developer AMI which allows developers to quickly build applications on the cloud, without requiring the purchase or installation of any software or hardware. Developers can then deploy and elastically scale their application to meet any customer demand using the full breadth of AWS services.
