Thanks for the comment. We do in fact provide the targeted reference designs online for customers to download and evaluate, along with the tools, IP, and instructions. Each of the targeted reference designs has been designed to work on a specific board and FPGA device. Currently, customers would need one of these board or would need to design a board based on design files including board layout provided in downloadable material to evaluate the functionality running in hardware. The IP that is included in the each of the kits is either full versions or evaluation versions that timeout. Xilinx targeted design platforms include OS, IP, and drivers that come from Xilinx as well as third party providers. For these kits Xilinx provides support for customers. - Xilinx PR guy

Targeted design platforms are a good idea. Perhaps these hardware platforms can be put online so an interested engineer can try them out before purchasing them. One concern I have is the amount of IP that needs to be purchased to support the design and the number of 3rd parties involved. If the OS, some key IP and drivers all come from different companies support can be a real issue.

from what I hear this is a "buzzing" conference -- I wish I was there!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
