HW Design Engineers: How To Port Vivado HLS Designs to Catapult HLS Platform

Brief Summary of Webinar:


High-Level Synthesis (HLS) offers significant benefits when developing algorithms and intellectual property (IP) blocks for implementation in digital logic solutions such as Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) and Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). Many FPGA vendors offer HLS tools and using those increases flexibility and productivity over traditional hardware description language (HDL) flows. But employing FPGA vendor-specific tools can limit the portability of the design outside of their ecosystem. To regain the flexibility of targeting a design to another technology requires porting the design from the vendor’s HLS environment into an HLS environment that supports any ASIC or FPGA technology.

Who Should Attend?

  • Designers who are interested in creating a portable solution of ASIC implementation.
  • Engineering Managers who want to know how to leverage existing code bases in new technologies.
  • HLS/RTL designers who are interested in learning about Catapult HLS

Post the session, the participants will be able to:

  • Learn how to port an existing HLS design developed within the Vivado® HLS environment into Catapult® HLS Platform.
  • Learn the differences in libraries and data structures
  • Learn how to port optimizations from Vivado to Catapult
