6 steps to setup and accelerate your application using Vitis Unified Software Platform:
Complete the following steps first, then complete the above 6 steps.
Step 1: Contact your local Sales Rep to purchase the Versal VCK190 Evaluation Kit and get started on hardware with the AIE tools.
Step 2: Obtain Vitis target platform and documentation from VCK190 HeadStart Lounge
Step 3: Take an AI Engine Training Course
Step 4: After Receiving the VCK190 Board, Redeem the Voucher (inside box) for the AI Engine Tool License
NOTE: While leveraging these tools on Hardware is the optimal way to evaluate the AI Engines, notify Sales if you are interested in the tools-only support flow.
The Vitis™ unified software platform documentation provides support for using Vitis for each of the two software development flows: Application acceleration development and Embedded software development.
The Vitis In-Depth Tutorials takes users through the design methodology and programming model for deploying accelerated applications on all Xilinx platforms.
Introduction to Vitis
Start here! Learn the basics of the Vitis programming model by putting together your very first application. No experience necessary!
Learn how to use the Vitis core development kit to build, analyze, and optimize an accelerated algorithm developed in C++, OpenCL, and even low-level hardware description languages (HDLs) like Verilog and VHDL.
AI Engine Development
Learn how to use the Vitis core tools to develop for Versal™, the first Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP) device from Xilinx. Learn how to target, develop, and deploy advance algorithms using Versal's AI Engine array in conjunction with PL IP/kernels and software applications running on the embedded processors.
Embedded Design Tutorials
Learn how to build and use embedded operating systems and drivers on Xilinx Adaptive SoCs and the MicroBlaze™ soft processor. These tutorials cover open-source operating systems and bare metal drivers available from Xilinx, compilers, debuggers, and profiling tools for traditional SoC software development.
Platform Creation Tutorial
Learn how to build custom platforms for Vitis to target your own boards, and how to modify and extend existing platforms. Learn how to configure the platform hardware sources, construct the runtime software environment, add support for software and hardware emulation, and more.
Xilinx Runtime (XRT) and Vitis System Optimization Tutorials
Learn how to optimize the CPU side of your application for efficient memory allocation, how to sequence system-level events, and more. On the back-end, learn how to control Vitis system-level topologies and low-level hardware implementation.
