Top 23 Python Fpga Projects

  • PlatformIO

    A professional collaborative platform for embedded development :alien:

    Project mention: Issue with Adafruit ESP32-S3: COM port switching, etc. | | 2023-03-06

    You might have better luck with PlatformIO than the Arduino IDE; it's better at automatically choosing the serial port, though I can't say I've used it under Windows.

  • glasgow

    Scots Army Knife for electronics

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Python Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 225 unique rules to find Python bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • amaranth

    A modern hardware definition language and toolchain based on Python

    Project mention: Why are there only 3 languages for FPGA development? | | 2022-12-01

    He probably meant Amaranth.

  • fusesoc

    Package manager and build abstraction tool for FPGA/ASIC development

    Project mention: Introduction to FPGAs | | 2023-02-06

    Check out It gives you a command line build flow that can drive Vivado (along with many other eda tools via edalize without having to touch the GUI (though you might want it for programming the board, though FuseSoC can do that too).

  • luna

    a USB multitool + Amaranth HDL framework for monitoring, hacking, and developing USB devices

  • prjxray

    Documenting the Xilinx 7-series bit-stream format.

    Project mention: OpenPOWER Foundation Demoes the LibreBMC Power-Based Open-Source BMC | | 2022-10-23
  • nmigen

    A refreshed Python toolbox for building complex digital hardware. See

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • edalize

    An abstraction library for interfacing EDA tools

    Project mention: Dropping EDA-GUI's 101 | | 2023-02-17

    Check out FuseSoC: which can handle Vivado builds for you (utilizing edalize: along with some nice package management. It can run against multiple tools so you can also get it to build simulations using Verilator or a commercial EDA tool if you have access to them.

  • finn

    Dataflow compiler for QNN inference on FPGAs

    Project mention: Sub ms - 3ms Latency Vision task on FPGA | | 2023-02-05

    It really depends on the type of data you are using. There may (or may not) be some trade offs and sacrifices. There are frameworks which can basically translate your neural network information from a high level python code into equivalent HLS code which is optimized for low latency when inferred on FPGAs. Some frameworks which might be useful for you to explore are hls4ml and finn. These are some frameworks which can achieve low latency inference of neural networks on FPGAs using Xilinx Vitis HLS. These are what I found when I did a similar experiment but with much lower latency target (a few hundred ns) and a very simple MLP with 1D signal as input which was a year ago. Not sure if there are better alternatives available as of 2023. But conceptually all these work on the primary principle of having a supporting framework/methodology to first quantize the network and limit the precision of data to fixed point. The HLS then produced will also be a result of the framework applying dataflow techniques such that the resulting HLS code will produce an RTL which has the best overall latency.

  • qkeras

    QKeras: a quantization deep learning library for Tensorflow Keras

    Project mention: How to build FPGA-based ML accelerator? | | 2022-07-06

    I would check out hls4ml. It's an open source project made by/for people at CERN to convert neural networks created in Python using QKeras (a quantization extension of Keras) into HLS, with Vivado HLS being the most well supported. There are some caveats though, and a fellow student and I have had trouble getting the generated HLS to match the Keras model and be feasible to synthesize, but it seems to work well for smaller neural networks.

  • PipelineC

    A C-like hardware description language (HDL) adding high level synthesis(HLS)-like automatic pipelining as a language construct/compiler feature.

    Project mention: Using FPGAs for computations as a beginner | | 2022-12-23

  • dace

    DaCe - Data Centric Parallel Programming

    Project mention: FPGA high-level programming | | 2023-02-02

    I had this recommended to me, but have yet to try it out:

  • hBPF

    hBPF = eBPF in hardware

    Project mention: HBPF – eBPF in Hardware | | 2022-04-01
  • systemrdl-compiler

    SystemRDL 2.0 language compiler front-end

    Project mention: Tool to generate table of memory-mapped register? | | 2023-02-11

    Also I would recommend SystemRDL for creating a definition usable in code generators:

  • pygears

    HW Design: A Functional Approach
