FPGA Designer

FPGA designers can now develop accelerator functions using any hardware description language (HDL) (e.g. Verilog/VHDL). A great way to get started is to simply select a platform and use the provided FPGA Interface Manager to seamlessly integrate your accelerator function with the software framework and applications on Intel® Xeon® CPUs. 

Software Developer

Software developers can make use of the Open Programmable Acceleration Engine software programming layer to develop libraries, frameworks, and applications that call accelerator functions implemented in FPGA hardware. 



Universities and academic research centers fuel innovation while building the next generation of software and hardware engineers and computer scientists. It is imperative to Intel that we forge a strong, worldwide, collaborative academic community to foster practical application and research of FPGA-based acceleration.
