RD-Edmunds platform software user guide
.. contents::
RD (Reference Design) is a collection of resources to provide a representative
view of typical compute subsystems that can be designed and implemented using
specific generations of Arm IP. `RD-Edmunds`_ platform (which is a variant of
the RD-N2 platform with Demeter CPU cores) will henceforth be referred as
- 32xMP1 Neoverse Demeter CPUs
- CMN-700 interconnect (mesh size 6x6)
- Multiple AXI expansion ports for I/O Coherent PCIe, Ethernet, offload
- Arm Cortex-M7 for System Control Processor (SCP) and
Manageability Control Processor (MCP)
The Fixed Virtual Platform of RD-Edmunds config supports 16xMP1 Neoverse
Demeter CPUs.
This document is a user guide on how to setup, build and run the RD-Edmunds
software stack on the Fixed Virtual Platform. The components integrated into
this stack is described in the `software stack`_ introduction page.
Setting up the Host Machine and Syncing the software stack
Host Machine requirements and the necessary steps to be followed to sync the
software stack are listed on '`Download sources`_' page.
Obtaining the RD-Edmunds FVP
The latest version of the RD-Edmunds fixed virtual platform (FVP) can be
downloaded from the `Arm Ecosystem FVPs`_ page. On this page, navigate to
"Neoverse Infrastructure FVPs" section. Click on "Neoverse Edmunds Reference
Design FVP" link to obtain the list of available Neoverse Edmunds Reference
Design FVPs. Click on "Download FVP RD Edmunds" link under the "Linux" section
to download the "RD-Edmunds" platform FVP installer. The RD-Edmunds FVP
executable is included in this installer and named as "FVP_RD_Edmunds".
Follow the instructions of the installer and setup the FVP. The installer, by
default, selects the home directory to install the FVP. To opt for different
directory than the one selected by the installer, provide an absolute path to
that directory when prompted for during the FVP installation process.
