The first step in performing hardware co-simulation is to set up your hardware board. The hardware setup for JTAG hardware co-simulation is as follows:
For JTAG-based hardware co-simulation, you will connect a cable to the board's JTAG port. Consult your board's documentation for the location of the board's JTAG port. Documentation for Xilinx boards can be downloaded from the Boards and Kits page on the Xilinx website.
For a description of the setup procedure for a JTAG hardware co-simulation, using a KC705 board as an example, see Setting Up a KC705 Board for JTAG Hardware Co-Simulation.
