Release Date
1.0.1 English

Dynamic Function eXchange (DFX) enables great flexibility within AMD silicon, empowering you to load applications on demand, deliver updates to deployed systems, and reduce power consumption. Platform designs allow for collaboration between groups, where one group can focus on infrastructure and another on hardware acceleration. However, DFX has fundamental flow requirements that lead to longer AMD Vivado™ Design Suite compile times and expose challenges with multi-user environments. The abstract shell flow removes some of these barriers, creating a more efficient path through the Vivado tools for DFX. Abstract shells open new possibilities for collaboration and compile-time efficiency for DFX platform solutions.
