The platform implements the device floor plan 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 HBM memory connections associated with SLR0.
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 (UG1416).
The Alveo U55C card has access to a total of 16 GB high-bandwidth memory (HBM) 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|
|HBM memory channel (system port name)||HBM[0:31] (16 GB)||No connections||No connections|
|PLRAM memory channels (system port name)||PLRAM[0:1] (128K per instance)||PLRAM[2:3] (128K per instance)||PLRAM[4:5] (128K per instance)|
|Host memory channels (system port name)||No connections||No connections||HOST 16 GB on host|
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.
|Block RAM tile||600||576||600|
Deployment Platform Installation
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)
