After SDx 2016.3 was installed, there is NO hardware platform available to use.

Hi @sl_cgi,

 

When you installed SDx did you select the platforms for SDAccel?

 

If you missed this step you will not see the platforms in the picture you attached.

Re: install hardware platforms SDAccel

Yes, I checked these options.

How can I double-check I checked the correction options?

Re: install hardware platforms SDAccel

I just checked the directory of /SDx/2016.3/platforms, it contains some platforms such as microzed, xilinx_adm-pcie-ku3_2ddr_3_2, etc.

Re: install hardware platforms SDAccel

This is most likely some issue with license. Please check the thread below:

Re: install hardware platforms SDAccel

Thanks for your reply. Yes, it should be the license issue.

 

The network name eth0 is correct. My problem is that I used wifi to have internet access. After I connect the computer with a cable via eth0 port, I have some platforms available to use.

 

New question:

But it appears only zynq platforms are available. NO PCIe SDAccel platforms available.

Now I tested the SDAccel on a laptop, without  PCIe or eval card installed.

Could it be the problem?

Re: install hardware platforms SDAccel

Hi @sl_cgi,

 

Verify that you have the correct license downloaded in the correct location. 

licenseDownload.jpg

 

The default location is

$HOME/.Xilinx/Xilinx.lic

To check run (in bash)

export -p | grep XILINXD

You should see

declare -x XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE="/home/<some_username>/.Xilinx/Xilinx.lic"

 

You do not need a PCIe card installed to target a PCIe platform.

Re: install hardware platforms SDAccel

@sl_cgi The SDSoC license will give you access the embedded platforms that you are seeing. This will not work for the PCIe platforms you asked about.

 

For the time being, the best way for you to get access to the SDAccel platforms is through the Nimbix Cloud.

 

Here is a nice setup guide PDF and take a look at the quick start video to get started after your account it active.

 

Best,

Re: install hardware platforms SDAccel

Ops.... We already ordered a PCIe card.
How can I buy a license for SDAccel?
