Linux has large set of Implication on FPGA Design. There are many distro’s which supports FPGA Design Tool [we are talking about Xilinx VIVADO], the preferred distro’s are: Ubuntu, CentOS, Redhat, SUSE etc.
Linux for FPGA Design:
- FPGA Design Tools can be installed on Linux Distro’s
- Linux can be used for building the FPGA bit files and sources [Bootable File], the linux commands allow to design any FPGA design more faster than following the VIVADO GUI.
- Installation of PetaLinux on Linux can be done for creating the embedded processing systems [bootable files].
- Development of Drivers on the Linux is more preferred for FPGA’s: as example writing the driver for PCI Express application for FPGA is preferred on Linux.
