Xilinx on the Nimbix Cloud
SDAccel™ is a development environment for OpenCL™ applications targeting Xilinx® FPGA based accelerator cards. This environment enables concurrent programming of the in-system processor and the FPGA fabric without the need for RTL design experience. The application is captured as a host program written in C/C++ and a set of computation kernels expressed in C, C++, or the OpenCL C language.
Xilinx has partnered with Nimbix Inc., a leading provider of heterogeneous accelerator clouds for big data and machine learning to create the next generation of applications leveraging the computational density of an FPGA from C/ C++ and OpenCL.
The offering from Nimbix will dramatically lower the barrier to leveraging the high performance, energy efficient power of FPGAs to accelerate high-end computational workflows across all industries. Developers can now run these tools in the cloud and then test and deploy on the latest Xilinx- accelerated hardware with no upfront investment or equipment purchases.
