Description (last modified by hmussman@bbn.com)

Per Seskar on 8/25:

Two nodes are available for remote access as part of ORBIT*.

The platform is also available for purchase from Radio Technology Systems.

Mussman on 8/31:

BUT, we need to understand the nature of the available systems, whether they are always available, and how they would be accessed via OMF in ORBIT.

Seskar on 8/25:

Main issue to date is the use of licensed software (namely Xilinx and Matlab) that is required for FPGA code development. This is especially troublesome for deployments in remotely accessible testbeds not only because it requires that each user have a valid license, but because most academic licenses require that the actual development be done on the machines that belong to the licensee (rather than on the infrastructure machines that the testbed provides). Same issue exists for other FPGA based solutions (like NetFPGA)

Specification tools like BlueSpec reduce some of these issues (matlab/simulink), but don’t get around basic Xilinx license issue

Outreach to Xilinx Research at Colorado to explore options

Mussman on 8/31: Need to resolve these issues!
