Figure 16. GSRD for Linux - Overview

The GSRD for Linux is a well-tested known good design showcasing a system using both HPS and FPGA resources, intended to be used as a baseline project.

GUIDELINE: To successfully build your software development platform, Intel recommends that you use the GSRD as a baseline project.

The GSRD, which targets the Intel SoC Development Boards, is provided both in source and pre-compiled form. Download the GSRD from, then modify it to suit your application needs.

GUIDELINE: It is recommended that all new projects use the latest version of GSRD as a baseline.
