FPGA AVMM DMA evaluation software

Where to download the Windows driver and application to evaluate the "AVMM DMA" design? Files like "Windows_for_AVMM_DMA_On_Chip_Mem.zip" mentioned in AN690 and "Gui package 090 80000000.zip" in the link below are missing.  Thank you!

Hi,


For Arria 10 AVMM DMA, can you please try this

https://community.intel.com/t5/FPGA-Wiki/Reference-Design-Gen3x8-AVMM-DMA-Arria-10/ta-p/735904?wapkw=Gui_package_090_80000000%20zip


I try it and I was able to download it

Only Windows software revision 1.1 can be downloaded from this link which contains the executable file.   There is no driver file or any documentation inside the downloaded file.  Still need help.  Thank you!

Hi Penguin,


You can use the revision 1.1 driver (the latest we provided) where you can run 

You can get the window driver path via  C:\PCIe_EP_example_design\software\windows\interop\Altera_PCIe_X_Test\Altera_PCIe_X_Test\Windows_driver\64-bit


For the documentation, you may get it from either

or

Hope this clarified,

The path on C drive you provided does not exist on my computer.  Which design package should I install to have that path and related drivers?   Thanks!

Hi Penguin,

Do you compile the design ?
Once you compile the design it shall available in "software" folder.

I test both design packages (an708 and an690) and compiled them successfully, but I still can not find the "software" folder in the project folders or anywhere on my harddisk containing the related driver files.  One screenshot attached.  Thanks!

Hi Penguin,


Normally the driver would store under example

C:\intelFPGA_pro\22.1\ip\altera\altera_pcie\altera_pcie_a10_ed\software\windows\project\Altera_PCIe_project_zip.v


Can you please try to check again ?

Also can try out this as well https://community.intel.com/t5/FPGA-Wiki/Reference-Design-Gen3x8-AVMM-DMA-Arria-10/ta-p/735904?wapkw=Gui_package_090_80000000%20zip
