The AI Engine Pipeline view in the Vitis IDE allows you to correlate instructions executed in a specific clock cycle with the labels in the Disassembly view. The underlying AI Engine pipeline is exposed in debug mode using the pipeline view. The Vitis IDE only supports pipeline view for graphs containing single kernels.

To enable the Pipeline view on graphs with a single kernel, select Generate Profile from the project debug configuration after the project has been built successfully.

  • If your graph has multiple tiles this view does not appear; however the case with multiple kernels in a single tile is supported.
  • The pipeline view support is available with the AI Engine simulator only.
