2.2 Installing Fast Models

This section describes how to install Fast Models.


  1. Unpack the installation package, if necessary, and execute ./setup.sh on Linux or Setup.exe on Windows.
    If the installer finds an existing installation, it displays a dialog to enable re-installation or uninstallation.
  2. On Linux, source the correct script for your shell to set up the environment variables. Ideally, include it for sourcing into the user environment on log-in:
    bash/sh: . <install_directory>/FastModelTools_0.0/source_all.sh
    csh: source <install_directory>/FastModelTools_0.0/source_all.csh
  3. Optionally, install the Third Party IP (TPIP) add-on package.


  • On Microsoft Windows 7, the Fast Models examples are installed in %PVLIB_HOME%\examples\. The installer makes a copy of them in %USERPROFILE%\ARM\FastModelsPortfolio_%FM-VERSION%\examples\. This copy allows you to save configuration changes to these examples without requiring Administrator permissions.

  • The Fast Models installation package includes the SystemC and TLM header files and libraries that you need to build an EVS, FVP, or SVP, and sets the SYSTEMC_HOME environment variable to their location.
