Accelerating Applications with the Vitis Unified Software Environment

Video Title Description
Introduction to the Vitis™ Unified Software Platform Explains how software/hardware engineers and application developers can benefit from the Vitis unified software environment and OpenCL framework.
Vitis IDE Tool Overview Describes the elements of the development flow, such as software emulation, hardware emulation, and system run as well as debugging support for the host code and kernel code.
Vitis Command Line Flow Introduces the Vitis environment makefile flow where the user manages the compilation of host code and kernels.
Vitis Accelerated Libraries Describes the Vitis accelerated libraries that are available for domain-specific and common libraries. These libraries are open-source, performance-optimized libraries that offer out-of-the-box acceleration.
Creating a Vitis Embedded Acceleration Platform (Edge) Describes the Vitis embedded acceleration platform, which provides product developers an environment for creating embedded software and accelerated applications on heterogeneous platforms based on FPGAs, Zynq SoCs, and Alveo data center cards.

Designing with Versal AI Engine

Video Title Description
Overview of the Versal ACAP Architecture Provides an overview of the Versal architecture at a high level and describes the various engines in the Versal ACAP, such as the Scalar Engines, Adaptable Engines, and Intelligent Engines. Also describes how the AI Engine in the Versal ACAP meets many dynamic market needs.
Introduction to the Versal AI Engine Architecture Introduces the architecture of the AI Engine and describes the AI Engine interfaces that are available, including the memory, lock, core debug, cascaded stream, and AXI-Stream interfaces.
Versal AI Engine Memory and Data Movement Describes the memory module architecture for the AI Engine and how memory can be accessed by the AI Engines in the AI Engine arrays.
Versal ACAP Tool Flow Reviews the Vitis tool flow for the AI Engine and demonstrates the full application acceleration flow for the Vitis platform.
Application Partitioning on Versal ACAPs 1 Covers what application partitioning is and how an application can be accelerated by using various compute engines in the Versal ACAP. Also describes how different models of computation (sequential, concurrent, and functional) can be mapped to the Versal ACAP.
The Programming Model: Single Kernel Reviews the AI Engine kernel programming flow for programming and building a single kernel. Also illustrates the steps to create, compile, simulate, and debug a single kernel program using the Vitis IDE tool.
The Programming Model: Introduction to the Adaptive Data Flow (ADF) Graph Provides the basics of the data flow graph model and graph input specifications for AI Engine programming. Also reviews graph input specifications, such as the number of platforms and ports.
