An Open-source FPGA IP Generator
The award-winning OpenFPGA framework is the first open-source FPGA IP generator supporting highly-customizable homogeneous FPGA architectures. OpenFPGA provides a full set of EDA support for customized FPGAs, including Verilog-to-bitstream generation and self-testing verification. OpenFPGA opens the door to democratizing FPGA technology and EDA techniques, with agile prototyping approaches and constantly evolving EDA tools for chip designers and researchers.
If this is the first time you learn OpenFPGA, we strongly recommend you to watch the introduction video about OpenFPGA
A tutorial video about how-to-compile can be found here
Before start, we strongly recommend you to read the required dependencies at compilation guidelines. It also includes detailed information about docker image.
# Clone the repository and go inside it git clone https://github.com/LNIS-Projects/OpenFPGA.git && cd OpenFPGA make all
Quick Compilation Verification
To quickly verify the tool is well compiled, user can run the following command from OpenFPGA root repository.
bash python3 openfpga_flow/scripts/run_fpga_task.py compilation_verification --debug --show_thread_logs
Python3 and iVerilog v10.1+ are required. GUI will pop-up if enabled during compilation.
Supported Operating Systems
We currently target OpenFPGA for: 1. Ubuntu 18.04 2. Red Hat 7.5
The tool was tested with these operating systems. It might work with earlier versions and other distributions.
OpenFPGA's full documentation includes tutorials, descriptions of the design flow, and tool options.
You can find some tutorials in the ./tutorials folder. This will help you get more familiar with the tool and use OpenFPGA under different configurations.
