Prerequisites

For this guide, you will need a host system and a target system that meet the following specifications.

Host System for Development with Intel® TCC Tools

To develop with Intel® TCC Tools, you will need a host system that meets the following specifications:
  • Recommended: Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS
    Instructions for Intel® TCC Tools contain steps and dependencies based on Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS as the host system. The host components of Intel® TCC Tools are expected to work on all common Linux distributions, but specific steps for setting up additional dependencies might be different.
  • Python* 3.7 or higher required for several components
  • Internet access
  • OpenSSL*

Target System

One of the following boards with a supported processor:
  • 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors DDR4 customer reference board with a supported processor:
    • 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i3-1115GRE
    • 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-1145GRE
    • 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1185GRE
  • Intel Atom® x6000E Series processors reference validation platform with a supported processor:
    • Intel Atom® Processor x6200FE
    • Intel Atom® Processor x6212RE
    • Intel Atom® Processor x6414RE
    • Intel Atom® Processor x6425RE
    • Intel Atom® Processor x6427FE
The RTCP (Real-Time Compute Performance) sample application demonstrates PCIe communication. If you choose to run this sample, you will need two boards. You will also need a network interface card with Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 series for each board.
Additional hardware:
  • CAT-5E Ethernet cable to connect the target system to the same network as the host
The following BIOS versions have been validated to work with this release of Intel® TCC Tools:
Other BIOS versions might work too.
  • For 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors:
    • TGLIFUI1.R00.3455.A02.2011240812
  • For Intel Atom® x6000E Series processors:
    • EHLSFWI1.R00.3092.A03.2102261658
To acquire boards or BIOS binaries, contact your Intel representative. Network interface cards with Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 series are widely available for purchase.
