We launched the Plunify Cloud platform in 2018 and introduced 2 new tools for FPGA designers. Corporate users can use the FPGA Expansion Pack (FEP) plugin to easily compile their designs in the cloud from Vivado. Another tool, AI Lab, allows FPGA designers to start a virtual environment in the cloud without worrying about the tool licenses and FPGA server configuration.
Announcing Micropayments Support – New Tiers Starting from $2.89
All our tools, like FEP and AI Lab on Plunify Cloud, run on a pre-paid cloud credit system. To cater to the diversified FPGA crowd, we are excited to announce that Plunify Cloud now supports micro-payments for WeChat Pay. For WeChat users, you can now purchase 30 credits at only RMB19.90. This is just USD 2.89. With WeChat, you can simply scan the QR Code on the website for payment.
For credit card users, do not fret. There is also a new tier for you – USD $9.90 for 100 credits. 100 credits are sufficient to run a basic server with FPGA tools for more than 15 hours.
Having micro and small payments enable our users to pay for what they need. They don’t get a bill shock at the end of the day.
What Can You Do with the Credits?
Credit consumption depends on the cloud server type and the using time. An example of the specs and costs of available cloud servers are listed as below.
