DS-5 for ARMv8 does not ship with a model (FVP). These are licensed and shipped separately.
There a couple of ways to get hold of a model...
- Use the free Foundation model. However, this won't let you do bare metal debug, which is what I guessing you wish to do with DS-5.
- Use a pre-built FVP (fixed virtual platform) model. These are models provided by ARM as pre-built binaries. They are fixed in the sense that the memory map/peripheral set can't be changed. However, they do have parameters to configure some aspects of the model.
- Use the Fast Models to build your own customer models
You may have already licenses a model or models. Otherwise I'd suggest contacting ARM's support team (Self-Service).
Martin, thanks for reply.
I have got a license of A53 of fast model. but after I build the project from example. the fastmodel only generate there files, that I didn't see FVP_VE_Cortex-A53x4.so in them:
~/FastModels/FastModelsPortfolio_8.3/examples/FVP_VE/Build_Cortex-A53x4$ ls Linux64-Debug-GCC-4.1/
cadi_system_Linux64-Debug-GCC-4.1.so gen libarmctmodel.so libSDL-1.2.so.0.11.2
FVP_VE_Cortex_A53x4_Linux64-Debug-GCC-4.1_Makefile.sg isim_system libMAXCOREInitSimulationEngine.so.2
Could you tell me how to build FVP_VE_Cortex-A53x4.so? thanks
