The platform implements the device floorplan shown in the following figure and uses resources across the multiple super logic regions (SLR) of the device. The static and dynamic regions are shown across the SLRs, along with the available DDR memory connections associated with each SLR.
To get the same information for development platforms, if you
install the Vitis unified software platform,
platforminfo command utility. It reports
information on interfaces, clocks, valid SLRs, allocated resources, and memory in a
structured format. For more information, see
platforminfo Utility in the
Application Acceleration Development flow of the Vitis Unified Software Platform Documentation
The Alveo U280 card has access to a total of 32 GB DDR memory and 8 GB HBM. The DDR memory banks are accessible through two memory controllers and the HBM is accessible through 32 pseudo channels. In addition, it is possible to use device logic resources for small, fast, on-chip memory accesses as PLRAM. The following table lists the allocation of memory resources per SLR.
|Resources||SLR 0||SLR 1||SLR 2|
|DDR memory channels (system port name)||DDR (16 GB DDR4)||DDR (16 GB DDR4)||No resources|
|HBM memory channels (system port name)||HBM[0:31] (8 GB)||No resources||No resources|
|PLRAM memory channels (system port name)||PLRAM[0:1] (128K, Block RAM)||PLRAM[2:3] (128K, Block RAM)||PLRAM[4:5] (128K, Block RAM)|
The platform provides a 300 MHz default clock to run the accelerator.
Available Resources After Platform Installation
The following table lists the available resources in the dynamic region of each SLR. It represents the total device resources after subtracting those used by the static region.
|Resource||SLR 0||SLR 1||SLR 2|
Deployment Platform Installation
To run applications with this platform, download the deployment installation packages corresponding to your OS listed in the following table. Then, use the installation procedures described in Getting Started with Alveo Data Center Accelerator Cards (UG1301).
Accelerated applications have software dependencies. Work with your accelerated application provider to determine which XRT version to install.
Development Platform Installation
For developing applications for use with the Alveo Data Center accelerator cards you must install and use the Vitis software platform. To set up an accelerator card for use in the development environment, follow the installation steps in:
- Vitis Software Platform Installation in the Vitis Unified Software Platform Documentation (UG1416)
- Installing Xilinx Runtime in the Vitis Unified Software Platform Documentation (UG1416)
