Open Project Builder

The Annapolis Micro Systems Open Project Builder™ provides the efficiency of CoreFire Next™ development with the flexibility of HDL. It integrates the CoreFire environment with Annapolis HDL board support packages.

Open Project Builder is compatible with Arria 10, UltraScale/UltraScale+, and Stratix 10 boards.

FPGA VHDL Development Tool Example

Open Project Builder™ users have the capability to use FPGA IP from multiple sources, such as CoreFire Next, High-Level Synthesis (HLS), other HDL, etc. Open Project Builder can also port IP to/from other hardware platforms. It uses standard Avalon and AXI IP interfaces. Open Project Builder provides fast portability of applications between Altera and Xilinx and to newer FPGA families.
