The folks at National Instruments
have just sent me the sort of product release I really like … one that's short, sharp, and to the point (grin).
They've announced that their LabVIEW FPGA IP Builder add-on, which uses leading Xilinx Vivado High-Level Synthesis
technology to simplify high-performance field-programmable gate array (FPGA) algorithm design. This new LabVIEW
add-on enhances productivity by reducing the need for manual optimization of high-performance algorithms. Instead, users specify functional behavior along with design constraints and the software automatically generates a hardware implementation to meet requirements.
The new add-on tightly integrates with LabVIEW and the LabVIEW DSP Design Module
, a LabVIEW module that helps researchers and system designers in the RF and telecommunications space quickly create communication links and multirate digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms on FPGAs. Product Features
- Increased FPGA design abstraction for enhanced productivity
- Improved algorithm performance and resource utilization
- Separation of code and design constraints facilitates IP reuse
- Seamless deployment to NI FPGA-based devices and integration with I/O
