In the early stages of the development cycle, it is critical to verify the design behavior functionally which identifies the errors. The x86 simulator is an ideal choice for testing and debugging because of the speed of iteration and the high level of data visibility it provides the developer. The x86 simulator runs exclusively on the tool development machine. This means its performance and memory use are defined by the development machine.
This tutorial design has three AI Engine kernels (interpolator, polar_clip, and classifier) and two HLS PL kernels (
