Understanding FPGA Compile Farm

Last Modified: February 27, 2020

An FPGA compile farm consists of a compile server and one or more compile workers that are connected to the compile server. The following figure shows 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 or a remote computer.
  3. The compile server sends the compile job to an available compile worker, which compiles the FPGA code into a bitfile. The compile worker can be the development computer or a remote computer.
  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.
