Updated fpga_support_files.tgz for OpenVINO 2019R1

Updated fpga_support_files.tgz for OpenVINO 2019R1

Hi
Looks like fpga_support_files.tgz wasn't updated for R1 release.
At least here fpga_support_files.tgz download link is for previous release. Thus I can't update and use my Mustang-F100 card.

Link for updated fpga_support_files.tgz is appreciated.

Regards
Konstantin

Dear Konstantin,

In the below document, configuration steps for (IEI's Mustang-F100-A10) on Linux are detailed:

Thanks,

Hi Shubha
Thank you for reply but it doesn't solve my problem. I do not need R5 instructions.

I've installed OpenVINO 2019'R1. Now I need to update Mustang-F100 card.
fpga_support_files.tgz available to download is outdated; scripts and firmware are for R5.
So where can I get updated fpga_support_files.tgz which will work for R1? Please provide the link.

Regards
Konstantin

The new fpga_support_files archive will be updated shortly.  I'll post an update after it's available for download.

Hi all,

I have the same issue, and it seems that this problem hasn't been solved yet.
When is the newest fpga_support_files.tgz going to be published?

I have the same problem and am unable to use the Mustang F100-A10 with OpenVINO 2019 R1. When will a new FPGA support package be available please? Thanks. Ulf

Hi

Looks like fpga_support_files archive was updated, but I'm not sure that the 2019R1 firmware there is the right one. I've updated flash image with jic file from "bringup" folder. And when I try to program FPGA device with precompiled bitstream I see the following:

 

fpgauser@fpganode:~$ aocl program acl0 /opt/intel/openvino/bitstreams/a10_vision_design_bitstreams/2019R1_PL1_FP11_ResNet_SqueezeNet_VGG.aocx
aocl program: Running program from /opt/altera/aocl-pro-rte/aclrte-linux64/board/a10_1150_sg1/linux64/libexec
Programming device: a10gx_2ddr : Intel Vision Accelerator Design with Intel Arria 10 FPGA (acla10_1150_sg10)
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] Quartus versions for base and import compile do not match
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] Board is currently programmed with sof from Quartus 18.1.1 263
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] PR import was compiled with Quartus 18.1.0 222
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] Reprogram the device with data saving and restoring
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] Trying Partial Reconfiguration
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] Quartus versions for base and import compile do not match
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] Board is currently programmed with sof from Quartus 18.1.1 263
MMD INFO : [acla10_1150_sg10] PR import was compiled with Quartus 18.1.0 222

To me it looks like BSP was compiled with 18.1.1 263, but bistreams were compiled with 18.1.0 222. I believe this version mismatch have to be resolved either with updated bitstreams or with proper BSP.

Looking forward for updates.

Regards
Konstantin
