This feature of the Vitis environment allows you to run and debug application projects, program the bitstream/PDI, and program the flash using multiple JTAG cables or multiple devices on a single JTAG chain. The main use cases are as follows:
- You have more than one board connected to the system and you want to work on all of the boards.
- You have multiple devices in a JTAG chain and you want to work all of the devices.
In the Vitis tool, the following operations are relevant to these use cases:
- Target connection (view only)
- Debugging applications using System Debugger (you can also program the FPGA during debug)
- Programming the FPGA
- Programming the flash
