RD-N2 Cfg1 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-N2 Cfg1 platform (which is a variant of the
the `RD-N2`_ platform) in particular is based on the following hardware
- 8xMP1 Neoverse N2 CPUs
- CMN-700 interconnect (mesh size 3x3)
- Multiple AXI expansion ports for I/O Coherent PCIe, Ethernet, offload
- Arm Cortex-M7 for System Control Processor (SCP) and
Manageability Control Processor (MCP)
This document is a user guide on how to setup, build and run the RD-N2 Cfg1
software stack on the Fixed Virtual Platform.
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-N2-Cfg1 FVP
The latest version of the RD-N2-Cfg1 fixed virtual platform (FVP) can be
downloaded from the `Arm Ecosystem FVPs`_ page. On this page, navigate to
"Neoverse Infrastructure FVPs" section to download the RD-N2-Cfg1 platform
FVP installer.
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.
Supported Features by RD-N2-Cfg1 platform software stack
RD-N2-Cfg1 platform software stack supports the following features.
- `Busybox Boot`_.
- `Linux Distribution Boot`_.
- `WinPE Boot`_.
- `ACS Compliance Test`_.
- `UEFI Secure Boot`_.
Follow the links above for detailed information about the build and execute
steps for each of the supported features.
