New Release v0.17.0
Introducing the new SMI memory infrastructure

In this release we’re introducing our new memory infrastructure - SMI (scalable multiprotocol infrastructure).

Upgrading

There is no need to update your tooling to take advantage of these new features.

Our current version is reco v0.5.0. Please run reco version from a terminal, and if you have a version other than that, please click here for update instructions.

SMI

Our new memory infrastructure, SMI, provides improvements to how we get our FPGAs talking to memory. These improvements include:

  • Projects are easier to scale
  • Higher bandwidth across multiple goroutines
  • Simpler code, less boilerplate

This is a test release as we’re still working on optimising the protocol. We wanted to give you access so you can see the potential of applying it to your applications, and so we can iron out any issues that come up.

For a full description, please see our blog post on SMI here.

And for a for a full rundown of this release, see our release notes.

What’s Next?
