Pre-built Vitis embedded platforms must be downloaded from the Xilinx website:

After you download the embedded platforms, there are three ways to include them in your project:

  • Extract the pre-built platforms to /opt/xilinx/platforms.
  • Extract the pre-built platforms to any folder. Set the PLATFORM_REPO_PATHS environment variable to the folder path.
    export PLATFORM_REPO_PATHS=/path/to/platforms
  • Extract the pre-built platforms to any folder. In the Vitis IDE, select Xilinx > Add Custom Platform and select the folder path.

Common Linux components can be extracted to any folder. When you create a Linux application, you will specify the path for the components in the Vitis New Application Project wizard.
