SimplePL is a runtime system that features an OpenCL-like application programming interface to interact with high level synthesis OpenCL kernels on your programmable logic. The system consists of a C Library that interacts with Linux kernel modules. SimplePL simplifies the development of Linux applications that use HLS OpenCL kernels. Applications can program the PL with pre-compiled bitfiles on demand and call it's HLS kernels IP cores through the library in a similar way an OpenCL application calls OpenCL kernels. SimplePL can schedule the workload on the available IP cores, manage the physical and the virtual addresses of the PL's units, create and manage memory buffers, handle the low level communication between the application and the PL and all these by hiding all the complexity of the programmer.
