4.2. Operating System Prerequisites

The FPGA AI Suite supports the following operating systems:
  • Red Hat* Enterprise Linux* 8.7
  • Ubuntu* 18.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS

    Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS is supported natively and in a Windows* Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2) environment.

    In a WSL 2 environment, only the FPGA AI Suite compiler and IP generation tools are supported.

  • Ubuntu* 22.04 LTS

    Ubuntu* 22.04 LTS is supported only natively. It is not supported in a WSL 2 environment. For support in a WSL 2 environment, use Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS.


The PCIe-based design examples require specific versions operating systems. This is required only to use the specific PCIe example design listed. For the operating system requirements for the PCIe-based design examples, refer to the following table:
