Configurations for Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ VPUs

The steps in this guide are only required if you want to perform inference on Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ VPUs.

For troubleshooting issues, please see the Troubleshooting Guide for more information.

Linux

For Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ VPUs, the following additional installation steps are required.

Note

If you installed the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ to the non-default install directory, replace /opt/intel with the directory in which you installed the software.

  1. Set the environment variables:

    source /opt/intel/openvino_2022/setupvars.sh

    Note

    The HDDL_INSTALL_DIR variable is set to <openvino_install_dir>/runtime/3rdparty/hddl. If you installed the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ to the default install directory, the HDDL_INSTALL_DIR was set to /opt/intel/openvino_2022/runtime/3rdparty/hddl.

  2. Install dependencies:

    ${HDDL_INSTALL_DIR}/install_IVAD_VPU_dependencies.sh

    Note, if the Linux kernel is updated after the installation, it is required to install drivers again:

    cd ${HDDL_INSTALL_DIR}/drivers
    sudo ./setup.sh install

    Now the dependencies are installed and you are ready to use the Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ with the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit.

Optional Steps

For advanced configuration steps for your IEI Mustang-V100-MX8-R10 accelerator, see Configurations for IEI Mustang-V100-MX8-R10 card. IEI Mustang-V100-MX8-R11 accelerator doesn’t require any additional steps.

Windows

To enable inference on Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ VPUs, the following additional installation steps are required:

  1. Download and install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017

  2. Check with a support engineer if your Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ VPUs card requires SMBUS connection to PCIe slot (most unlikely). Install the SMBUS driver only if confirmed (by default, it’s not required):

    1. Go to the <INSTALL_DIR>\runtime\3rdparty\hddl\drivers\SMBusDriver directory, where <INSTALL_DIR> is the directory in which the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit is installed.

    2. Right click on the hddlsmbus.inf file and choose Install from the pop up menu.

You are done installing your device driver and are ready to use your Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ VPUs.

For advanced configuration steps for your IEI Mustang-V100-MX8 accelerator, see Configurations for IEI Mustang-V100-MX8-R10 card.

After configuration is done, you are ready to go to Start Using the Toolkit section to learn the basic OpenVINO™ toolkit workflow and run code samples and demo applications.
