Where can I find the qdma development shell for Alveo U200?

Jump to solution

I am trying to create a design for the Alveo U200 using the SDAccel flow with an existing RTL kernel.

I would like to use the QDMA shell rather than the XDMA shell, as the host to kernel axi streaming interface is a better fit for our existing RTL design than the AXI master interface to DDR.

UG1238 (v2019.1) - SDAccel Development Environment states that the U200 supports both "xilinx_u200_qdma_201830_1" and "xilinx_u200_qdma_201910_1" shells (Table 3), but the only versions available on the U200 Getting Started page are for the XDMA:
https://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/alveo/u200.html#2018_3

I note that the 19.1 XRT is not available to download yet, but even the 2018.3 qdma shell would be most useful.

Can anybody tell me where I can find the qdma shells?

Many Thanks,
Mike
