PCIe Installation Instructions

Install linux header files

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic

Install the GIT package

sudo apt-get install binutils gcc

Change folder to the pcie driver location

cd kernel

Compile the PCIe driver and its tests

make

Install the PCIe drivers and libraries

sudo make install

Load the Driver module

sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/extra/PciDriver.ko

After this the kernel should have found the FPGA board and initialized it. Run the following command and check its output

dmesg | tail

You should see something like the excerpt below:

[267002.495109] pciDriver - pcidriver_init :
    Major 250 allocated to nodename 'fpga'
[267002.495130] pciDriver - pcidriver_probe :
    Found ML605 board at 0000:01:00.0
[267002.495224] pciDriver - pcidriver_probe :
    Device /dev/fpga0 added
[267002.495434] pciDriver - pcidriver_probe_irq :
    Registered Interrupt Handler at pin 1, line 11, IRQ 16
[267002.495450] pciDriver - pcidriver_init :
    Module loaded

Running the PCIe self-test

After the installation of the PCIe driver (see above) it is possible to run a self test to check if everything is setup properly. For this run the following:

Change to the "compiled tests folder"

cd tests/pcie/bin

Run the test entitled "testPciDriverMod"

sudo ./testPciDriverMod

You should get an output like the following, if everythig is ok:

    -------------------------------------
    |        All tests PASSED!          |
    -------------------------------------

Notice that some tests that try to evaluate the limits of a current Linux Kernel may fail in some cases. In the example above, two tests , due to an attempt to allocate a large buffer in kernel space.

This is not actually an error or a failure, it is just trying to allocate more memory than the kernel has available.

Installation Instructions

Server

Compile everything with debug info. The superuser access is necessary because it checks (and installs if needed) the PCIe kernel driver.

If the PCIe driver is already installed, you could run it without superuser.

./compile.sh <board type = [ml605|afcv3]>

Client

Change to the Client API folder

cd src/libs/libbpmclient

Compile the library, with debug info

make ERRHAND_DBG=y ERRHAND_MIN_LEVEL=DBG_MIN_TRACE \
    ERRHAND_SUBSYS_ON=’”(DBG_DEV_MNGR | DBG_DEV_IO | DBG_SM_IO | \
    DBG_LIB_CLIENT  | DBG_SM_PR | DBG_SM_CH | DBG_LL_IO | DBG_HAL_UTILS)”’

Install the library

sudo make install

Running the examples

Change to the examples folder

cd examples

Compile the examples

make

Run an example application, for instance, the leds example

./leds -v -b <broker_endpoint> -board <board_number> -bpm <bpm_number>

Typically, one should choose the IPC transport method for its faster than TCP. For instance:

./leds -v -b ipc:///tmp/bpm -board <board_number> -bpm <bpm_number>

If one would like to use TCP, it should call, for instance:

./leds -v -b tcp://127.0.0.1:8888 -board <board_number> -bpm <bpm_number>

Leds should be blinking in the FMC ADC board
