RSoC Framework and the DPDK

We are happy to announce a great synergy between the RSoC Framework and DPDK. The RSoC Framework is a system providing various (high-performance or low-latency) data transfers with respect to the underlying architecture which is usually a CPU with an FPGA. The DPDK is a set of libraries and userspace drivers providing very fast access to the network cards. This allows to process the network traffic at a very high packet rate.

As DPDK now works on the ARM platform, we can use RSoC Framework as a reasonable solution for data transfer as its backend. You can work with DPDK while the RSoC Framework ensures the proper communication with your hardware accelerators and EMACs. The first working solution is already available as a packet-capture video done for the Xilinx Zynq (Zedboard).
