Using the FPGA Compile Farm

Version:

You can compile FPGA code into a bitfile using the FPGA compile farm.

The following figure shows the components of an FPGA compile farm and explains how the components work together to compile FPGA code into a bitfile.

1. You create and edit FPGA code on the development computer.
2. The development computer submits a compile job request to the compile server.
3. The compile server sends the compile job to an available compile worker, which compiles the FPGA code into a bitfile.
4. The compile worker submits the bitfile back to the compile server.
5. The compile server sends the bitfile back to the development computer. You can then deploy the bitfile to the FPGA target.

To use the FPGA compile farm, you must set up a compile server and at least one compile worker. You can set up the development computer as the compile server and compile worker so that you can compile FPGA code locally. You also can set up remote computers as the compile server and compile worker(s) so that multiple developers can compile FPGA code remotely using the same compile farm.
