- Copy the contents of the <project>/Hardware/sd_card/sd_card folder to a physical SD card. This creates a bootable medium for your target platform.
- Insert the SD card into the card reader of your embedded processor platform.
- Change the boot-mode settings of the platform to SD boot mode, and power up the board.
- After the device is booted, enter the
mountcommand at the command prompt to get a list of mount points. As shown in the following figure, the
mountcommand displays mounting information for the system.Tip: Be sure to capture the proper path for the
cdcommand in the next step, and subsequent commands, based on the results of the
- Execute the following commands, for
cd /run/media/mmcblkop1 source init.sh cat /etc/xocl.txt
catcommand will display the platform name
xilinx_vck190_base_202310_1to let you confirm it is the same as your specified platform and that your setup is correct.
ifconfigto get the IP address of the target card. You will use the IP address to set up a TCF agent connection in the Vitis unified IDE to connect to the assigned IP address of the embedded processor platform.
- Create a target connection to the remote accelerator card. Use the Target Connections dialog box. menu command to open the
- Right-click the Linux TCF Agent and select the New Target command to open the New Target Connection dialog box.
Specify the Target Name, enable the Set as default target check box, and specify the Host IP address of the accelerator card that you obtained in an earlier step.
- Click OK to close and continue.
In the Flow Navigator view, click the Open Settings command to open the Launch Configuration editor to create a new launch configuration for the hardware design
Set the following fields on the Main tab of the dialog box:
- Specifies a name for your Hardware debug configuration.
- Target Connection
- Select a Linux TCF agent as previously configured
- Host Executable
- Specify the location of the software application to drive the hardware
- Cmd Line Args
- Specify any needed command line arguments for the host application, such as the .xclbin file to load
- Work Directory
- Specifies the location where the system is run and output files will be written
- XRT Config File
- Specifies the xrt.ini file to add to the hardware run as described in Enabling Profiling in Your Application
- Stop at Main
- Puts a breakpoint in the host application to stop
at the entry to the
main()function to enable debug operations
- Stop At Program Entry
- Places a breakpoint at the entry to the hardware program to enable debug operations
- Select Debug from the Flow
Navigator to open the Debug view as described in Debug View.
This opens the Debug view in the Vitis unified IDE, and connects to the PS application on your hardware platform. The application automatically breaks at the
main()function to let you set up and configure the debug environment.
For hardware builds the setup involves the following steps:
