Vitis HLS provides pragmas that can be used to help optimize the design and improve throughput performance. The PERFORMANCE pragmas apply to loops and loop nests in order to determine the performance.
Performance pragmas can now automatically infer lower-level optimizations, such as unroll, pipeline, array_partition, and inline pragmas. The ability to specify throughput requirements at the loop level reduces complexity as users do not have to figure out partitioning, pipelining and unrolling needs, thus making the HLS tool easier to use.
The Vitis HLS 2022.2 release offers a new way to write “task-level parallel (TLP)” code.
A program written in C/C++ is executed sequentially on the CPU. To achieve high-performance hardware, the HLS tool must infer parallelism from sequential code and exploit it to achieve greater performance. Incorporating TLP improves throughput and enables more efficient FPGA utilization.
The new Vivado® ML Editions 2022.2 release offers several major improvements and enhancements to the tool set.
Power Design Manager (PDM) is the new, next-generation power estimation platform designed to bring accurate and consistent power estimation capabilities for Versal® devices and Kria™ SOMs. Power Design Manager is the preferred power estimation tool for the Versal product family, including Versal Prime, Premium, AI Core, and AI Edge series.
As a widely loved AI acceleration development platform, Vitis AI has ushered in a new release, which is now available on June 15th.
We expect AI to play a more critical role in different workloads and device platforms.
