LegUp Computing is proud to announce we have been added to Xilinx’s Partner member website. We have also listed our Memcached database solution running on an AWS F1 (FPGA) instance. Please read our solution brief for more details.

Andrew Canis and Ruolong Lian will be at the Xilinx Developer Forum in Frankfurt, Germany this coming Monday, December 10th to give a talk (5:30-6pm) on LegUp’s Memcached accelerator. See you there!

Release Notes

New features and bug fixes for this release:

  • Fused multiply-add (FMA) support using hard floating-point DSPs on Intel Arria 10. This allows performing multiply-add (a = b*c+d) or multiply-accumulate (a += b*c) using a single hardened DSP block running at 300+ MHz.
  • Ability to control from software implementing FIFOs in registers, block RAMs, or Ultra RAMs (on Xilinx UltraScale devices)
  • Various bug fixes


LegUp 6.4 comes with a 30-day free trial period so that you can try out the tool. Please note that during the trial period, you may only use LegUp for evaluation purposes, and the generated hardware cannot be used in a commercial product. To purchase a full license, please contact us at sales@legupcomputing.com.
