[N3000 setup] Pr Interface ID: eeeeeeee-eeee-eeee-2222-222222222222

Hi,

  1. I am installing N3000 PAC on a Xeon CPU. I installed the setup according to this
    https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/documentation/xgz1560360700260.html

  2. Installed Arria 10 Acceleration Stack for PAC from here
    https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/documentation/iyu1522005567196.html
  3. Then when I source the `init_env.sh`, I am able to source all environments and scripts without error.

  4. I am able to run `aocl diagnose`, below is the output. The diagnostics is passing but PAC remains uninitialized

  5.  Latter when I tried programming a bitstream file into the PAC, it shows this error

  6. I ran `sudo fpgainfo fme`, and the Pr Interface ID: eeeeeeee-eeee-eeee-2222-222222222222 seems weird. It's not expected per the setup manual, and the ID is definitely off. Not to mention my Bitstream version is 0.0.0 and MAX10 version is too low.

Did I missed out some steps will installing the PAC that leads to the error above? I tried re-installing but it and still same problem.

 

OS: CentOS 7.4

3.10.0-1160.25.1.el7.x86_64

 

Thank you.

The acceleration stack you are trying to install is for this board:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/acceleration-card-arria-10-gx/overview.html

While you have this board:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/intel-fpga-pac-n3000/overview.html

You should install this acceleration stack instead:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/intel-fpga-pac-n3000/getting-started.html

Note that if OpenCL support is what you are looking for, there is no OpenCL support for the N3000 board as far as I am aware.

Hi,

If I install solely the first link mentioned by you, I am unable to run `aocl diagnose`, that's how I ended up installing both. Thanks for the clarification!

My goal is to run deep learning inference targeting `HETERO:FPGA,CPU`, is the N3000 PAC capable of doing this?

Another question, how do I run `aocl diagnose` on the N3000 pac? And, if I installed only N3000 Acceleration Stack, `sudo fpgainfo fme` is not working as well.

 

Thank you.

N3000 does not support OpenCL

Hi JonWay,

Does that mean that I am unable to run deep learning inference targeting `HETERO:FPGA,CPU` on N3000?

 

Thank you.

The card is meant for networking infrastructure offloading. If you want to do inferencing, you can consider using the D5005 card.

Hi, JonWay answered the question, I should have installed only the N3000 acceleration stack instead of mixing both of them. My problem is that I am having the wrong PAC, I should be using the D5005 PAC.

 

Thanks all.
