For Vitis AI development kit v1.2 release, there are two kinds of examples. They are;
  • VART based examples demonstrating the using of the Vitis AI unified high-level C++/Python APIs (which are available across cloud-to-edge).
  • DNNDK based examples demonstrating the usage of the Vitis AI advanced low-level C++/ Python APIs (only available for the ege DPUCZDX8G).

These samples can be found at The alveo folder contains the sample for DPUCADX8G on Alveo platform, and the folder mpsoc contains the samples for edge DPUCZDX8G on ZCU102 and ZCU104 boards

If you are using Xilinx ZCU102 and ZCU104 boards to run samples, make sure to enable X11 forwarding with the "ssh -X" option, or the command export DISPLAY= (assuming the IP address of host machine is, when logging in to the board using an SSH terminal, as all the examples require X11 to work properly.

Note: The examples will not work through a UART connection due to the lack of X11 support. Alternatively, you can connect boards with a monitor directly instead of using the Ethernet.
