P4-NetFPGA Workflow for Networking Researchers
At the 2017 P4 Developer Day, Xilinx will introduce the P4-NetFPGA workflow for networking researchers, developed in collaboration with Stanford University and the University of Cambridge. The new workflow couples the new Xilinx® P416 to FPGA compilation capability with the Xilinx technology-powered open source NetFPGA SUME platform for networking research (netfpga.org). It allows researchers to easily conduct experiments in hardware operating at line rate. At the Developer Day, there will be a half-day hands-on laboratory allowing attendees to gain experience with P4-NetFPGA, including implementing In-band Network Telemetry.

P416-to-FPGA Compilation Demonstration
At the 2017 P4 Workshop, where the new P416 language specification will be discussed, Xilinx will debut its P416 to FPGA compilation flow based on the Xilinx® SDNet™ Development Environment for Networking. SDNet supports FPGA packet processing rates between 1 Gb/sec and 100 Gb/sec. At the workshop, an industry-first demonstration of joint work by Xilinx Labs and Stanford University will show stateful data plane processing for the TCP protocol implemented by compiling a P416 program to a Xilinx FPGA.
