The world’s fastest FPGA for accelerated computing is now accessible everywhere from the AWS Cloud.
Xilinx FPGAs are available in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) F1 instances. F1 instances are designed to accelerate data center workloads including machine learning inference, data analytics, video processing, and genomics.
With F1 instances you can:
Amazon EC2 F1 instances are available today in two different sizes that include up to eight Virtex® UltraScale+ VU9P FPGAs with a combined peak compute capability over 170 TOP/sec (INT8).
Amazon Web Services offers the Xilinx SDAccel ™ Development Environment for cloud acceleration. SDAccel empowers hardware designers to easily deploy their RTL designs in the F1 instance. It also automates the acceleration of code written in C, C++ or OpenCL by building application-specific accelerators on the F1 instances.
Get started with SDAccel in five easy steps.
If you prefer your dev system to be on premise, Vivado® Design Suite together with the SDAccel Development Environment can be purchased or upgraded to work with the F1 instances in the Amazon cloud. Purchase or upgrade now.
If you are interested in F1 instances as part of our academic partner program, go to the Xilinx University Program (XUP) cloud page.
