Hi all, After quite a lot of pain, I thought to ask here for some help to get the de10 nano working with the VTA stack. This is a learning project to get myself started with FPGA in the ML world.
What I have achieved
I am able to compile the vta and runtime on the board, and to generate the bitstream on the host.
Where I am stuck
However, when I try to program the board, it hangs for a while and then the board disconnects. There is a python function called
program_bitstream that receives the bitstream I generated, which is the one where the interpreter hangs.
Have you ever experienced similar issues? From the guide I read that the zImage might not be suitable. Is it because of the CMA support? How can I use a different zImage on the board? I tried to simply copy the one provided in the example in the boot partition, but it doesn’t work (would have been to easy )
Any comment, suggestion, ideas are really welcomed!
