ASE simulation for AAL




I am trying to run ASE simulation for my AAL application. However on the site "" there is small section for AAL and it does not give a clear and detailed explanation for the flow. I think it is as simple as OPAE flow, however I couldn't manage to run the simulation. Is there any documentation or someone who can give detailed information about the flow?


PS: I am working on an on-going project, so I cannot switch to OPAE right now.

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards.

I am not much familiar with AAL, however looking at the link you pointed, I can see


AAL legacy software

A few Broadwell machines remain available with the AAL driver loaded if you must continue to use AAL. The AAL user-space development environment is loaded by fpga-setup-env when the fpga-bdx-aal class is chosen. In general, the instructions for using AAL within the vLab environment are similar to OPAE. Configure the environment with fpga-setup-env, run synthesis jobs with qsub-synth, run simulation with qsub-sim and allocate an FPGA with qsub-fpga.


Another section in link describe the steps to run simulation.

and further detailed tutorial here



Here are some pointers to the ASE Quick starter guide
