What was the flow to execute Pure Verilog code of Machine Learning in Alveo U250 Platform.

Jump to solution

Hi,

If customer have complete RTL code in Verilog of a Machine Learning Design and he wanted to do video Inference on Alveo U250 Boards. What was the flow suggested for the Only RTL based Designs.

Is SDAccel flow is mandatory?

Is there any BSP available only for Vivado users for Alveo Boards? 

 

Regards

Murthy

Hi @nmurthy

To add to the other posters comments in 2018.2_XDF, we are not supporting a Vivado Flow for specifically the Alveo Vivado Flow. However  the board flow in 2018.3 Vivado allows you to target the U200 or U250.

You can refer the link suggested by @kpatel for creating RTL based Kernel which is further integrated into the flow to create accelerated kernels. 

Regards
Rohit

Doing ML on Alveo with pure Verilog is like re-writing Windows using just assembly language.

See the SDAccel Help for more information on RTL Kernel Wizard for your request:

what about the pcie driver?

Can I use the driver file in AR# 65444  to transport data just like KCU1500 ?

Or in other words, can I use Alveo just the way I use KCU1500 ?
