The Vitis™ AI development environment accelerates AI inference on Xilinx® hardware platforms, including both edge devices and Alveo™ accelerator cards. It consists of optimized IP cores, tools, libraries, models, and example designs. It is designed with high efficiency and ease of use in mind to unleash the full potential of AI acceleration on Xilinx FPGAs and on adaptive compute acceleration platforms (ACAPs). The Vitis AI development environment makes it easy for users without FPGA knowledge to develop deep-learning inference applications by abstracting the intricacies of the underlying FPGA and ACAP.
