Where can the firmware for the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 VPU be downloaded, and what license does it fall under?

Dear BRETT W,

Sorry but we cannot un-bundle the FW package from the NCS2.

Thanks,

Shubha

What does that mean? Is it provided on a CD or USB stick accompanying the NCS2? Does the manual include a link to an Intel Software download site?

The OpenVINO binary release includes the firmware files MvNCPI-ma2450.mvcmd and MvNCPI-ma2480.mvcmd. The OpenVINO open source release includes a cmake script that automatically downloads the firmware files from a non-official download site.

I'm part of the Clear Linux team, packaging OpenVINO from the open source release, and I need to either provide the firmware under a distributable license, or be able to provide clear instructions to users how to go obtain it themselves from a proper download site.

Dear BRETT W,

What it means is that there is no separate firmware product associated with Myriad.

Hopefully this makes sense.

Thanks,

Shubha
