5.2. Compiling Exported Graphs Through the Intel FPGA AI Suite
The Intel FPGA AI Suite compiler compiles the network and exports it to a .bin file that uses the same .bin format as required by the OpenVINO™ Inference Engine.
This .bin file created by the compiler contains the compiled network parameters for all the target devices (FPGA, CPU, or both) along with the weights and biases. The inference application imports this file at runtime.
The Intel FPGA AI Suite compiler can also compile the graph and provide estimated area or performance metrics for a given Architecture File or produce an optimized Architecture File.
