HACCs

Introducing the Heterogeneous Accelerated Compute Clusters

The Heterogeneous Accelerated Compute Clusters (HACCs) 

HACCs (formerly known as XACC, Xilinx Adaptive Compute Clusters) is a special initiative to support novel research in adaptive compute acceleration for high performance computing (HPC).  

HACCs have been established at some of world’s most prestigious universities. HACCs are equipped with the latest AMD hardware and software technologies for adaptive compute acceleration research.   

Researchers are invited to join the program to get remote access to AMD heterogeneous compute acceleration hardware.

PYNQ

Python Productivity for Adaptive Compute platforms

xilinx-pynq-logo

PYNQ is an open-source project from that makes it easier to use Adaptive Computing platforms.

Using the Python language and libraries, designers can exploit the benefits of programmable logic and microprocessors to build more capable and exciting electronic systems.

PYNQ can be used with Zynq, Zynq UltraScale+, Zynq RFSoC, Alveo accelerator boards and AWS-F1.

For more details, including how to get started, see www.pynq.io.
