As designs get more complex, AMD is continuing to innovate—ensuring that system architects and developers have the tools they need to efficiently develop mixed-domain designs that include both the processing subsystem and the FPGA fabric.
Today, I am pleased to announce the Vitis™ unified software platform 2023.2 release, offering a singular environment to facilitate the streamlined design, simulation, and implementation of high-performance designs using AMD adaptive SoCs and FPGAs.
Our latest release unleashes new functionality, such as a standalone tool for embedded C/C++ design, a new unified GUI, and a host of enhancements to simplify the use of AMD Versal™ adaptive SoCs with AI Engines (AIEs).

As digital signal processing (DSP) compute requirements grow to support everything from radar systems and medical imaging to high-performance test equipment and 5G wireless systems, so does the need for computing solutions that deliver on performance and power requirements.  

When exploring the implementation of these solutions, using ASICs with fixed functions can mean additional hardware and software redesigns. With a rich set of hardware-accelerated open-source libraries accessible through design tools, SoCs and FPGAs unleash a more efficient and flexible path to meet evolving demands.

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.

In another leap forward in our commitment to supporting open-source initiatives that help empower the developer and research communities at large to harness the benefits of adaptive computing, we’ve made the exciting move to open access to the front-end of our Vitis HLS (high level synthesis) on GitHub, the world’s largest development platform and open community for building and sharing software code. The Vitis HLS tool allows C, C++, and OpenCL™ functions to be deployed onto the device logic fabric and RAM/DSP blocks. Making the Vitis HLS front-end available on GitHub opens a new world of possibilities for researchers, developers and compiler enthusiasts to tap into the Vitis HLS technology and modify it for the specific needs of their applications.

Imagine a world where technology for humans doesn't require humans to operate. Where data is analyzed in industrial, automotive, and even medical settings by the machines themselves. And where factory line workers, long-haul truckers, and surgeons are not obsolete but more efficient and more capable than ever before.

As the nexus of human and cyber physical cognition, Machine Learning  systems are taking us into the fifth industrial revolution. And the Xilinx Vitis Unified Software Platform  is making it easier for companies to integrate Machine Learning features into their products.
