3. Changes in Software Behavior

Intel® FPGA AI Suite Version 2023.1 introduces the following changes in software behavior:
  • The family specification to target Intel Agilex® 7 devices in an architecture configuration (.arch) file is now AGX7. In past releases, it was AGX.
  • You can now compile bitstreams without an Intel® FPGA AI Suite license.

    Instances of the IP that are created by the dla_create_ip command without a license have an inference count limitation built into them that causes the IP to stop performing inference when the inference count reaches 10 000. To reset the inference count, reprogram the FPGA device.

  • The Intel® FPGA AI Suite compiler command is now dla_compiler. For backwards compatibility, the old command (dlac) is still supported.
  • Compiling the Intel Agilex® 7 PCIe design example now requires that you set the AOCL_BOARD_PACKAGE_ROOT environment variable first.
