Empty project for EBSP programs
This repository can serve as a template for EBSP programs. This README will help you get started on running and writing EBSP programs on your Parallella. We will assume you have access to the following, it should be enough to follow the getting started guide found on the Parallella website.
- A (16-core) Parallella board.
- Installation of version 2016.3 of the ESDK, and an environment variable
EPIPHANY_HOMEshould be set to the proper path.
By default all the build tools we need should be available. If this is not the case, installing
git and a recent version of
gcc should be enough.
Cloning the repository
Open a terminal, or
ssh into the Parallella, and run the command:
$ git clone https://github.com/coduin/ebsp-empty-project.git <your project>
<your project> should be substituted with a suitable name for your project. Afterwards, you can
cd into the empty project's directory:
$ cd <your project>
Inside this directory you will find a directory
ext, which contains the relevant headers and libraries for EBSP, and a directory
src containing the code for the EBSP program. Also, a
Makefile is provided which will compile the project using default settings. To build the "Hello World" program that is include by default simply run:
This will compile the host program and a kernel. When you run the host program using:
It will load the kernel
ecore_program on each Epiphany core. You should see the following output:
$08: Hello World from processor 8 / 16 $01: Hello World from processor 1 / 16 $07: Hello World from processor 7 / 16 ...
