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

Development Host System

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 Processor
    • 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-1145GRE Processor
    • 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1185GRE Processor
  • Intel Atom® x6000E Series Processors reference validation platform with a supported processor:
    • Intel Atom® x6200FE Processor
    • Intel Atom® x6212RE Processor
    • Intel Atom® x6414RE Processor
    • Intel Atom® x6425RE Processor
    • Intel Atom® x6427FE Processor
To run the MRL (MMIO Read Latency) sample application, your board will need integrated TSN or a network interface card with Intel® Ethernet Controller I225 Series. If integrated TSN is not available for any reason, the NIC is required.
Additional hardware:
  • Minimum 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.
IFWI with Intel® Boot Guard profile 0 (SEP0) is required for customer reference boards and reference validation platforms.
  • For 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors:
    • TGLIFUI1.R00.4163.A01.2104221540
  • For Intel Atom® x6000E Series Processors:
    • EHLSFWI1.R00.3162.A01.2104131432
To acquire boards or BIOS binaries, contact your Intel representative. Network interface cards with Intel® Ethernet Controller I225 Series are widely available for purchase.
