Software & Hardware Requirements

The current VVAS Video Analytics solution package for data center platform consists of the following software and hardware dependencies.

Supported Host Operating System

Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS (Kernel: 5.4.0-135-generic)

Software packages

  • Xilinx Runtime (XRT) Version: 2.14.418

  • APU Petalinux Package version: 2.14.418

  • V70 Platform Package: xilinx_v70_gen5x8_qdma_base_2

Hardware Requirements

  • Host Machine: X86 host machine with x16 PCIe slot

  • AMD Alveo V70 card: AMD Alveo V70 card with ES1 silicon

  • DMB2 (Alveo programming) cable connected between V70 card and Windows laptop with Vivado 2022.2 installed (Needed only if received V70 card has no pre-loaded image and “lspci -vd 10ee:” is not detecting the card)

  • To avoid inconsistent failure we recommend disabling the IOMMU of the host system. For example, follow below steps if V70 card is installed on server with AMD CPU.

sudo  bash  -c  'echo  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="amd_iommu=off"  >> /etc/default/grub'
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
sudo reboot
