Setting up the FPGA Compiler Environment

Last Modified: August 13, 2018

Before building a bitfile from your FPGA code, you must set up your FPGA compiler environment.

The following figure shows the components that play a role in compiling FPGA code 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. The compile server can be the development computer, a remote computer in the same network as the development computer, or a cloud 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.

Depending on the compile server you use, complete the following tasks to set up your FPGA compiler environment:

Compile server Tasks to complete
Local (development) computer
  1. Set up a web server
  2. Connect one or more compile workers to the compile server
  3. Connect to the local compile server
Remote computer Connect to the remote compile server
(Recommended) Cloud compile server Connect to the cloud compile server
