Vitis Platform

Briefly speaking, a platform is a package that contains the HPFM (.xsa) file and SPFM (software components). When you input the .xsa file and software components, the AMD Vitis™ IDE tool will package them together and generate a platform .xpfm file, while the .xsa file is designed and exported from the AMD Vivado™ tool. Software components are prepared by AMD and ready to use for evaluation. Software components customization is also supported with Petalinux, if needed.
