Intel Qat Linux Driver Download C3xxx Install Update
I have received this week a motherboard with the Atom C processor. I am very interested in the QuickAssist capabilities from this micro, so my next goal is to compile and to install the Linux Kernel Crypto Framework Driver. Hello, I would suggest you to register on the Embedded Program.
Here you can also get further information on what are the benefits of becoming a basic or privileged user. I am already registered as a basic user. All I want to know is whether these documents are available for basic users or they are only available to privileged users. I would prefer not having to register as a privileged user since this development is not a corporate project, but just a personal one.
This is the Rangeley product page. Scroll down to the "Tools and Downloads" section and then click on "Development Tools. Intel Atom Processor C It is a sample drive for Intel QuickAssist technology.
However, both of these documents are Intel confidential, as well. If you would like to speak with Intel about your embedded project you will also see a "Connect with Us" heading in the right hand side of the Rangeley product page.
Click on "Request Design Assistance", complete the form and you will be contacted within a few business days. I hope this is helpful. You will need to apply for Privileged access. If you go to the search function and enter "C" you'll see 33 results. Items with a "lock" symbol require Privileged access. Just one more question: I can understand they being confidential while the hardware is in the prototype testing phase, but this hardware is already available to anybody interested.
Should not switch their status all these documents moving from confidential to publicly available? Anyway, thanks a lot for your helpful answer. I have asked the team to look at all of the documents to see if there are any that we can move out of 'confidential' to 'public' status as I do agree that there are so many still in confidential status. However, to do a design the EDS and PDG documents are needed and those always remain Intel confidential, even after the product officially launches.
I am not trying to design a new device after all. I am more on the software development side. My interest in the Atom C family of processors came when I discovered that some of them could make use of the QuickAssist technology. I am working on topics related to storage systems, in particular the storage of medical images, which can be very large. Some storage systems do calculate hash functions MD5, SHA-xxx for every stored file in order to verify their integrity.
The times necessary for the calculation of these sum functions are in the range of several seconds in the case of big files. This processor is perfect for such a kind of systems since it has enough CPU performance for a storage server system. On the other side, the use of the QuickAssist capabilities could lead to an important improvement when compared to other alternative solutions.
That is the reason why I have bought a motherboard including the Atom C processor. This way, the hashing functions present in our software could be executed using the cryptographic QAT engine. So, as you can see, I am not really interested in designing embedded products, but rather in making use of some of the new features offered by this new family of products. Since these products are already available and being sold to the final users, I was not expecting to find these troubles when trying to utilize their offered features.
I have registered as a basic user, but I was rejected when trying to register as a privileged user. Should I contact edc. Unfortunately personal emails like gmail, yahoo, etc. If you can update your profile to your company information we can then check to see if a CNDA already exists or get the process started.
The easiest way to do this go to the main page of the EDC http: An agent should contact you within 2 business days. Try that and please let me know if you need assistance in reaching anyone. Here is a link to the Rangeley page: Its now July and this situation has not improved. Why release these chips for sale on general purpose motherboards if the QAT functionality can not be used by folks without a privileged account?
I just applied for one via my work email and was sent a generic dismissal. That doesn't sound like 'getting a CNDA started with my company, that sounds like a generic dismissal. All this to access software for a device I have already paid for from Intel.
I'm not designing a new piece of hardware here, just trying to use the software that goes with the device. Other QAT enabled cards have software available at https: There are also patches for openssl, libcrypto, and zlib on that site that look great, and I'd like to use them. But without a driver they are useless.
I bet you that once AMD launches their A ARM processors with embedded offload, and release documentation on how to use that embedded offload, that magically Intel will scramble to get their documentation and drivers online so people can actually use it. Perhaps we'll just wait for AMD to release first, we can delay our buying decisions until then. I'm sorry that you are encountering obstacles getting the content you need. I did some deeper investigating and found that your company has a CNDA so you should be receiving an email that provides you Privileged access.
Next, although it doesn't seem to completely address your needs, I am having document added to the Embedded Design Center http: Once published you can type in the search box to find the document.
Next, I spoke with the Intel representative, Gregg, who covers your geographical area. You completed a form and it was routed to him. So, he is already researching your question and will be in contact with you shortly. Again, I apologize for your experience but hope that we are now on the right track to assist you as best we can. There are 3 documents that should be helpful to you. Unfortunately I still don't have access. The only thing I have heard from anyone at Intel is that rejection email, and these posts from you online.
Access was granted and the system activated your account at 9: You should have a welcome email. I tried those links before posting and they didn't work. Just tried again and they work I think they take a bit to load and maybe that was the issue.
I'm glad that your Privileged account is now working. I am working on getting them searchable in the EDC so in the future you can enter the document numbers in the search box and quickly access them. Hope to have that functioning properly soon.
Enjoy all of that reading material! Consider the fact the version of fedora that is recommended in the guide isn't even available for download anymore. Even stranger is that it seems that intel HAS done the work to port these changes to a modern kernel. I think at this stage c is not going to be supporting any further release of Fedora versions.
The C release date per ark. The wikipedia page for intel atom processors List of Intel Atom microprocessors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia claims a release date of September Here is the 'End of Life' page for various Fedora releases: That seems kind of strange. Let me put this another way. Quickassist is designed as a security technology, for use in cryptographic offload in security applications. And has only ever been supported on such software.
There is work being done for the C platform in the linux-next branch as well. It doesn't seem like Intel ever designed this platform for general use. They certainly don't seem to be providing platform support. Steve1, I checked with one of specialists here's some additional information: With the latest QAT1. This functionality has not been added yet.
You can use the latest release, or any release you wish, and the expectation is that it may work with different versions. If you find any issue, please provide as much detail as possible to Intel, we will do our best to look into it and possible make any update or fix the issue. It has been 4 weeks and still no update.
It still does not build under a 3. You should be able to access document using your Privileged EDC account. The document will surface and you can then access it.
Have a nice day! The correct file is indeed downloading now, however the description on the EDC site still indicates version:.
Intel Atom C3958 16-Core Top End Embedded QAT Linux Benchmarks and Review
CPU microcode is a mechanism to correct certain errata in existing systems. The normal preferred method to apply microcode updates is using the system BIOS, but for a subset of Intel's processors this can be done at runtime using the operating system. This package contains those processors that support OS loading of microcode updates. Intel recommends getting the microcode using the OS vendor update mechanism. Expert users can of course update their microcode directly outside the OS vendor mechanism. This method is complex and thus could be error prone.
