The primary issue when targeting a new platform is ensuring that an existing kernel placement will work in the new target platform. Each target platform has an FPGA defined by a static region. As shown in the figure below, the target platform(s) can be different.

  • The target platform on the left has four SLRs, and the static region is spread across all four SLRs.
  • The target platform on the right has only three SLRs, and the static region is fully-contained in SLR1.

This section explains how to modify the placement of the kernels.
