Netcope’s NP4, a cloud-based programming tool allows you to specify networking behavior using declarations written in the P4 network-specific, high-level programming language for the company’s high-performance, programmable Smart NICs based on Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ and Virtex-7 FPGAs. The programming process involves the following steps:

 

  1. Write the P4 code.
  2. Upload your code to the NP4 cloud.
  3. Wait for the application to autonomously translate your P4 code into VHDL and synthesize the FPGA configuration.
  4. Download the firmware bitstream and upload it to the FPGA on your Netcope NIC.

 

Netcope calls NP4 its “Firmware as a Service” offering. If you are interested in trying NP4, you can request free trial access to the cloud service here.
