I am a Masters student at CMU working on a hypervisor project. In this project I need to debug an Intel CPU that runs VMX instructions using DCI. It looks like I need some propitiatory software from Intel to set up the hardware debugging. Probably I need Intel System Studio or Intel System Bring-up Toolkit, but I am not sure which one.
How can I get these software? It looks like I may need to sign a Confidential Non-Disclosure Agreement (CNDA). Does anyone know how I can sign it?
Hi Eric, you can purchase a license to access the legacy Intel® System Studio.
Intel® oneAPI toolkits are the next generation of standards-based Intel® Software Development Tools for building and deploying smart, connected high-performance IoT applications across diverse architectures. The transition from Intel® System Studio to Intel® oneAPI toolkits delivers additional capabilities through existing tools and new tools. Intel® System Studio has transitioned onto Intel® oneAPI Base & IoT Toolkit. You can purchase an Intel® oneAPI Base & IoT Toolkit license from your nearest distributor/re-seller.
To contact your nearest re-seller/distributor, please click here: https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/tools/resellers.html, and scroll down to select your country from the drop down menu. You will be presented with their contact information.
I am going to use Intel® oneAPI toolkits for academic research purposes, and the commercial license is too expensive for me. Is there a free / community / academic version of the product?
I am not sure which exact software I need, but I think https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/tools/oneapi/system-bring-up-toolkit.html is most likely one I need. It says that this software requires a CNDA agreement. Do you know how I can sign one?
Eric, Intel® oneAPI Toolkits is available for free as well. The tools are part of separate toolkits. Intel® System Studio has transitioned into Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit + Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit. To download the toolkits for free, visit: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/articles/news/free-intel-software-developer-tools....
Also, to access the Intel® System Bring-up Toolkit, click on the 'Request Access' button by clicking here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/tools/oneapi/toolkits.html#bring-up-kit
Eric, Intel® System Bring-Up Toolkit is a NDA only toolkit. This means that the components of this toolkit are accessible to you only if you have CNDA/NDA agreement with Intel®.
For inquiring about how to setup an NDA with Intel®, you will need to talk to your Intel® account manager or representative to set that up for you or talk to your company's legal department to start the process for that.
I am a student at a university (CMU). I don't think my university's legal department can set the NDA up for me. I registered this Intel account myself. The registration is entirely online (I did not talk to any one in Intel during registration). Do you know who my account manager / representative is?
Eric, unfortunately we were unable to hear back from you.
If you have any further queries, please post a new question as this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel®.
