Mitrion from Mitrionics, it uses an graphical interface to display in simulation the algorithm executed. An important component is the Mitrionics IDE (Interface Developer Environment) which is an essential tool to write the programs inside of Mitrion. The Mitrion Virtual Processor is another tool that facilitates writing code because if separates completely software from hardware, so the programmer will not have to deal with any configuration of the FPGA. The compiler is free demo which is the one tested. The code that the compiler reads is similar to C language, except for some libraries exclusively created for Mitrion. It is executed through the console from Windows or Linux. A problem with this compiler is that its exclusive libraries were hard to implement in our project. Nevertheless, it is a good application to create accelerated code. Its examples have been tested which we downloaded from the Mitrionics website.

The link to download the different packages of Mitrion:
Download Mitrionics, click here
- If you are installing on Linux, download the Mitrion packages with the following extensions: .deb, .rpm, and .tgz.
- The one that I used is mitrion-sdk-pe-1.5.2.deb. I opened the console and changed its destination where the file s downloaded and type:
[ sudo dpkg -i mitrion-sdk-pe-1.5.2.deb ]
- If the extension of the file is .rpm execute the next command from the console.
[ rpm -i mitrion-sdk-1.5.2.rpm ]
- Now, Mitrion is installed in your computer. You can find the reference files and documentations in "/opt/mitrion" location.
- If the installation is on Windows, download the Mitrion package .exe.
- Execute the file, do double click on the file
How to use:
Mitrion C contains an IDE to create and compile the programs that you create. It can also use any text editor for, it only needs to save the source code with the extension ".mitc"
- In the console type: mitrion sourcodename.mitc (the compiler will read the code and will verify if the syntax is correct.
- Or type: mitrion -gui sourcodename.mitc (to compile the file and to use the graphical tool, that will display in simulation the program in execution.)
