Xilinx Alveo U250 XDMA-based Getting Started Guide
The getting started guides that follow this page will walk you through the complete (XDMA-based) flow for getting an example FireSim simulation up and running using an on-premises Xilinx Alveo U250 FPGA, from scratch.
First, we’ll set up your environment, then run a simulation of a single RISC-V Rocket-based SoC booting Linux, using a pre-built bitstream. Next, we’ll show you how to build your own FPGA bitstreams for a custom hardware design. After you complete these guides, you can look at the “Advanced Docs” in the sidebar to the left.
Here’s a high-level outline of what we’ll be doing in this guide:
- Initial Setup/Installation
- System Setup
- FireSim Repo Setup
- Running a Single Node Simulation
- Building Your Own Hardware Designs
