SGI-575 platform software user guide
====================================
.. contents::
Introduction
------------
SGI (System Guidance for Infrastructure) 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. SGI-575 in particular is based
on the following hardware configuration.
- 8x Cortex-A75 with private L2 Cache
- DynamIQ with L3 Cache options
- System Level Cache options
- Up to 2x DDR4-3200 (DMC-620)
- 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 SGI-575
software stack on the Fixed Virtual Platform.
Setting up the Host Machine and downloading 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 SGI-575 Fast Model
--------------------------------
The latest version of SGI-575 Fast Model can be requested by sending a email
to Arm at this email address: `support-connect@arm.com <mailto:support-connect@arm.com>`_.
Follow the instruction in the installer and setup the FVP. Typically, the
installer will ask to create a new folder in the home directory. You can either
install the FVP in the home folder, or in the ``fastmodel/refinfra`` folder
inside the workspace. If you would like to install in the ``fastmodel/refinfra``
folder, when asked for the install location, provide the absolute path of the
``fastmodel/refinfra``.
Supported features
------------------
SGI-575 platform software stack supports the following features.
- `Busybox Boot`_
- `Buildroot Boot`_
- `Linux Distribution Boot`_
- `UEFI Secure Boot`_
- `DMC-620 RAS`_
Follow the links above for detailed information about the build and execute
steps for each of the supported features.
