I am curious about where this is going?
Nowhere clear yet. We're just looking for alternative use-cases for our .NET HLS tool Hastlayer (since it's created entirely with software developers in mind we don't really call it a HLS tool actually).
I'm not that curious - X have put serious money into HLS and others have into their competitive offerings.
I can't see such a casual approach is going to lead to an improved tool set any time soon.
I’m curious about what experiences everyone has here using Vivado HLS with a Zynq-based board. Would you share yours?
- If you haven’t used Vivado HLS, why not? E.g. didn’t like the IDE, didn’t like the languages, hard to learn, too low level (I like nicer programming environments), too high level (I’m fine with VHDL/Verilog).
- If you have used Vivado HLS, what did you dislike? E.g. didn’t like the IDE, didn’t like the languages, hard to learn, hard to debug.
We’re doing this for our company, researching whether to come up with a new, programmer-focused HLS tool for Zynq owners. Driven more like out of curiosity than a particular business case. If you’d like to be kept in the loop add “yes PM” to the end of your message and I’ll get in touch with you via a private message.
