3. Intel® FPGA AI Suite Compiler Use Modes

The Intel® FPGA AI Suite compiler has a number of modes that you can use when developing your graph and architecture.

The use modes require your graphs to be processed into an OpenVINO™ intermediate representation (IR) by the OpenVINO™ Model Optimizer tool. The Model Optimizer generates IR files that describe your model network topology (.xml) and the weights and biases for your model (.bin).

These OpenVINO™ IR files also serve as inputs to the OpenVINO™ Inference Engine.

Use the Intel® FPGA AI Suite compiler (dla_compiler command) to do the following tasks:
