XACC Cluster Software

Software:

All XACC compute machines use Ubuntu 18.04

Toolchain support:

  • Xilinx Vitis
  • Xilinx XRT v2.6.655 on compute nodes
  • Python v3
  • Open MPI
  • OpenMP
  • SLURM v17

FPGA Toolchain Usage:
Users are expected to follow the Xilinx Vitis/Pynq flow when using the Alveos. We do not support non-standard design flows. Here are some guidelines:

  • Only support for Alveo flows
  • Use Vitis/Pynq
  • C/C++ or OpenCL or RTL
  • Work with Alveo shells
  • No custom FPGA images
  • No custom OS/Kernels
  • No root access available
  • No JTAG debugging available
