Installation Guide

This guide gives instructions on how to build and test Tengine on Linux system. If want to use Tengine for android, refer to build_android.

1. Preparation

1.1 Download source code

To get started, git clone the latest Tengine repository.

git clone

1.2 Install dependent libraries

  • For loading caffe model or tensorflow model
    sudo apt install libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler
  • For image preprocessing in test samples
    sudo apt install libopencv-dev
  • For caffe/tensorflow wrapper
    sudo apt install libboost-all-dev libgoogle-glog-dev

1.3 Prepare config files

  • Copy config example file makefile.config.example
     cd ~/tengine
     cp makefile.config.example makefile.config
  • Edit makefile.config
    • ARCH

      By default, CONFIG_ARCH_ARM64 option is valid.

      • if you want to run Tengine on ARM32 or X86 system, you can run the openblas branch by comment CONFIG_ARCH_ARM64, and enable CONFIG_ARCH_BLAS=y
    • ACL GPU

      By default, ACL GPU option is invalid. Support ACL GPU need uncomment CONFIG_ACL_GPU=y and set ACL_ROOT

       ACL_ROOT = /home/firefly/ComputeLibrary(your ACL root)
    • Serializer

      By default, caffe / tengine serializer, option is valid .

      If you want to support mxnet, onnx, tensorflow, uncomment options

    • Wrapper

      By default, wrapper option is invalid. if want to use caffe/tensorflow wrapper, uncomment CONFIG_FRAMEWORK_WRAPPER=y


2. Build

cd ~/tengine
make -j4

3. Run demo

Tengine also provides some example programs for tests, and you can easily validate whether your Tengine is successfully built by running these test programs and inspecting the results.

3.1 Run SqueezeNet

cd ~/tengine

Output message:

0.2763 - "n02123045 tabby, tabby cat"
0.2673 - "n02123159 tiger cat"
0.1766 - "n02119789 kit fox, Vulpes macrotis"
0.0827 - "n02124075 Egyptian cat"
0.0777 - "n02085620 Chihuahua"

3.2 Run MobileNet

cd ~/tengine

Output message:

8.5976 - "n02123159 tiger cat"
7.9550 - "n02119022 red fox, Vulpes vulpes"
7.8679 - "n02119789 kit fox, Vulpes macrotis"
7.4274 - "n02113023 Pembroke, Pembroke Welsh corgi"
6.3647 - "n02123045 tabby, tabby cat"

For more information about the performance test of Tengine, please refer to the documentation of benchmark.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
