Document Table of Contents Verify the AFU with ASE

Type the following commands to compile the AFU and platform simulation models and start the simulation server process:
cd build_sim


make sim

After the commands complete, ASE indicates that the server is ready for simulation. Note the instructions for setting the ASE_WORKDIR environment variable in the ASE client window.

Open a second terminal window and enter the following commands to start the ASE client process:
<Set ASE_WORKDIR as directed by the simulator in the server window.>

cd $OPAE_PLATFORM_ROOT/hw/samples/hello_afu/sw

make clean

make USE_ASE=1


The OPAE host application runs on the host in the ASE client window process and the ASE server window process shows the AFU model responding to host MMIO accesses, host memory accesses initiated by the AFU, and interrupt vector information signaled by the AFU.
