MitySOM-A10S Development Virtual Machine

VM Info

A pre-configured 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04 virtual machine is provided here: (filename: MitySOM-A10S.ova — MD5 checksum: e84930821a45e2706ece48b59c84e1d0)

The VM was created using VirtualBox 5.2.24 with the following specifications:
  • Username: user
  • Password: user
  • Maximum storage: 200 GB
    • The hard disk is dynamically allocated so it will grow as storage is needed. The base import's hard disk is ~11 GB.
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • CPU cores: 1

Importing the VM using VirtualBox

  1. In VirtualBox, select the menu option File -> Import Appliance...
  2. Click the folder icon to browse to and select the downloaded ova file, then click Next
  3. You can change several VM options at this stage:
    • Ensure the "Reinitialize the MAC address of all network cards" checkbox at the bottom of the window is checked
    • You can rename the VM if desired
    • You can increase the number of CPU cores available to the VM (recommended to increase to the number available on your PC)
    • You can increase the amount of RAM available to the VM (it's configured with the minimum 4 GB necessary for development, so you may want to increase it if you have enough on your PC)
  4. Click Import

Using the VM

The Linux toolchain for development is installed at /opt/poky/2.4.3/

The prerequisite packages necessary to perform a Yocto build and to build an SD card image are also installed.


  • The git repositories necessary for a Yocto build are cloned (all on the rocko branch) in ~/poky/
  • The Linux kernel source is cloned (on the socfpga-4.9.78-ltsi branch) in ~/linux-socfpga/
  • The Quartus example project is cloned (on the master branch) in ~/mitysom-a10s/
