For the hardware build, the –-package command creates an sd_card.img file, which contains the contents of the sd_card/ folder. The next step is to copy the sd_card.img file onto an SD card, which becomes the boot device of your system.

Perform the following steps to run the hw_main_full_ps.elf excutable on your VCK190 board.

  1. Ensure that your board is powered off.

  2. Use an SD card writer (such as balenaEtcher) to flash the sd_card.img file an SD card.

  3. Plug the flashed SD card into the top slot of the VCK190 board.

  4. Set the switch SW1 Mode[3:0]=1110 = OFF OFF OFF ON.

  5. Connect your computer to the VCK190 board using the included USB cable.

  6. Open a TeraTerm terminal and select the correct COM port. Set the port settings to the following:

Port: <COMMXX>
Speed: 115200
Data: 8 bit
Parity: none
Stop Bits: 1 bit
Flow control: none
Transmit delay: 0 msec/char 0 msec/line
  1. Power on the board.

  2. Output of bare-metal PS host application: the *.elf should execute immediately after booting and you should see output on the console for each phase in the PS host application execution flow. At the end of the application, you should see the following final output:

[ULBF] Read first 4 iterations of Slave-11 errCount:0...
[DLBF+ULBF] - ***** TEST PASSED *****
 ***** END TEST *****

NB: HW_emu  run will take long hours to run which makes software collapse , hw run can be successfully done.
