Technology Advancements For Dynamic Function eXchange In Vivado ML Edition

Make more efficient use of hardware resources and reduce power consumption.


As systems become more complex and designers are asked to do more with less, adaptability is a critical asset. While Xilinx FPGAs and SoCs always provided the flexibility to perform on-site device reprogramming, current constraints including increased cost, tighter board space, and power consumption demand even more efficient design strategies. Xilinx Dynamic Function eXchange (DFX) extends the inherent flexibility of the silicon by allowing specific regions to be reprogrammed with new functionality while applications continue to run in the remainder of the device. DFX addresses three fundamental challenges while enabling the designer to:

  • Make more efficient usage of hardware resources
  • Keep a deployed system operational while application changes are made
  • Reduce dynamic power consumption

Silicon and software technology for DFX in Vivado® ML edition continues to evolve over successive generations.
