Compact Vitis for Acceleration

Workshop


Online Live

Sequential processing or data path speed is a bottleneck in many high-end systems based on CPUs, whereas FPGAs provide massive parallel data processing along with an optimized data path. A system with CPU and FPGA combination would be an ideal solution by utilizing the best of both worlds. But FPGA development is more complex and often hard to achieve time to market requirements. Xilinx® developed a hard- and software-based ecosystem to utilize FPGAs as an application-specific processing element along with CPUs. Xilinx®’s unified software environment Vitis™ offers the capabilities to translate CPU functions into such FPGA mappings using HLS or to generate native RTL-based kernels. With these techniques, FPGA-based development is streamlined by staying in high-level programming languages and using defined APIs for application
offloading and data path acceleration.
In this course, you will learn how to develop, debug and profile new or existing C/C++ and RTL applications with Vitis™ targeting both Data Center (DC) and Edge-embedded applications. Beyond the kernel generation concepts, it will be derived how to run designs on the Xilinx® Alveo™ accelerator board or Edge development kits. The course is focused on building a software application using an OpenCL or native C API to deploy the Linux-based Xilinx® Runtime (XRT) to efficiently accelerate specific functions in kernels and control data movement on an embedded processor or PCIe®-based x86 platforms.

This course adds on top of the »Vitis HLS« course and leverages basic tool flow experience from the compact series workshops on embedded development.

Due to accompanying exercises, the course offers in-depth and practice-oriented training. Attendees of the online live course will do the practical exercises in the afternoon on their own.

FAQ

01. Can you help me with reserving the room?

If you need a room for a face-to-face course, please contact us. We will support you in choosing suitable accommodation.

02. What times in the day do courses start and end?

Our face-to-face courses start daily at 9 a.m. (CET/CEST) and end at 5 p.m., with two coffee breaks and an extended lunch break. The total course time per day is 6 hours. For online courses, the start is also at 9 a.m. (CET/CEST), but they end at 2:30 p.m.. The total course time per day is 4 and a half hours plus breaks.

03. Are course materials provided?

All participants of paid courses will receive English training materials in electronic or paper form.

04. Will I receive a course certificate?

Each participant of a paid PLC2 course will receive a signed certificate of attendance at the end of the course.

05. Can I pay with Training Credits (TCs)?

Of course, you can also pay for your training using your available TCs (Training Credits). We will then invoice AMD directly. If you do not have sufficient credit for the booked training, the difference can be paid for with an additional payment. The additional charge will be invoiced directly to you.

06. What are the options for payment?

You can pay us via bank transfer or with TCs (Training Credits). Unfortunately, payment via debit, credit card, or PayPal is not possible.

07. What is the deadline for payment?

Payment is due 14 days after the invoice date, without deduction. Please transfer the amount within that time.

08. What are the options for cancelling?

You can cancel free of charge up to 14 days before the course starts. If you have to cancel at short notice due to illness or other reasons, you have the option of adding a substitute participant or of making up the course at a later date (within 6 months).

09. When will I receive a firm commitment as to whether the course will take place?

You will receive binding confirmation 7 days before the course begins as to whether it will go ahead.

10. How many participants are required for a course to be given/what is the minimum number of participants?

We generally offer courses for 5 or more people. That means that if you would like to book a course at your premises, you need 5 people to register or need to pay the amount for 5 participants, even if fewer people attend.

11. Can I book a course that is given in English?

If you need a course that is officially advertised as given in German to be given in English, please contact us. We will try to make that possible for you.

12. What language is the course in?

Our webinars and online courses are conducted in English. All our F2F training courses are generally conducted in German. Feel free to contact us if you need face-to-face training in English or online training in German.
