Remote SigntalTap setup issue on Intel PAC Arria10

Dear Sir/madam,

 

I am running the example nlb_mode_0_stp on Intel PAC arria10 card.

the purpose is try remote signaltap debug function based on vendor provided example and Accelerator Function Unit Developers Guide for Intel FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card.

 

the operation on the debug target host with the PAC installed worked good as I excpected

 

[root@fig01 samples]# ls

dma_afu   hello_afu   nlb_mode_0   README

eth_e2e_e10 hello_intr_afu nlb_mode_0_stp streaming_dma_afu

eth_e2e_e40 hello_mem_afu nlb_mode_3

[root@fig01 samples]# sudo fpgaconf nlb_mode_0_stp/bin/nlb_mode_0_stp.gbs 

[root@fig01 samples]# sudo mmlink -P -B

^Z

[1]+ Stopped        sudo mmlink -P -B

 

-----------------------------the end of target host----------------

below is operation on remote debug host, where the system_consule is not recognized as below for some reason.

 

I did check the PATH environment variable setting ,it looks setting correctly, Any suggestion for this issue?

 

thanks

I found a wrong spelling for system_console, but after I changed it to correct one system-console ,,issue is still there as below

I have found that command not being recognized issue was caused by PATH environment variable.

On the 37 of the AFU Developer’s Guide for Intel FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card , it says your PATH environment variable on the remote

debug host is setup to point to the following location in the Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition installation:

<installation-path>/<q-edition>/sopc_builder/bin

 

Actually, the PATH should be <installation-path>/<q-edition>/quartus/sopc_builder/bin

there is a middle directory quartus between /<q-edition> and /sopc_builder.

 

hope user manual can be more accurate and save customer time

 

thanks

 

Jim
