New Release v0.12.0
You can now generate dataflow graphs for your code
Graphs for optimization
We’ve added a new feature to our tooling to allow you to generate dataflow graphs for your programs during development.
Our compiler takes your code through several stages to optimize it for the FPGA architecture. One of these steps involves converting it into a language called Teak, which has its roots at the University of Manchester. Using the Teak output we can generate dataflow graphs, which we can use to analyze our programs with a view to increasing their performance.
This is an experimental step in our tooling, which is only available at this alpha stage. The dataflow output is pretty complex so the Reconfigure.io team are on hand to help early access customers with this step. There will be more to read about this in the next few days, but for now, have a look at an overview in our documentation.
Command line improvements
As well as adding the graph feature to
reco we’ve streamlined our tooling, breaking out subcommands and improving the overall workflow. You can see a full list of commands here.
