Now program the FPGA with a conversion bundle:

  1. Download one of the following conversion packages from the X3522 conversion website (see NIC to PV Conversion Website):
    • XN-201355-LS Alveo X3 PV Conversion [RPM package], recommended for Red Hat, SUSE or CentOS.
    • XN-201356-LS Alveo X3 PV Conversion [Debian package], recommended for Ubuntu or Debian.
  2. Install the conversion package that you downloaded.

    Refer to Install the Update Files for the procedure to follow.

  3. Program the FPGA with the x3522pv_signed.update conversion bundle that was installed from the conversion package.

    Refer to Program the FPGA for the procedure to follow.

    Important: You must perform the step in this procedure that instructs you to do a full cold reboot. If you do not, the conversion process might fail.
  4. List the PCIe devices that have the vendor ID used by an X3522. Confirm that the device that you updated is now shown as a Processing accelerator with device ID 5074:
    # lspci -D -d 10ee
    0000:01:00.0 Processing accelerators: Xilinx Corporation Device 5074
    If so, you have successfully converted the card to an X3522PV adaptable accelerator card.
