Software stack for bare-metal applications and Linux applications on the PS in Versal ACAP are similar to Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs. Versal ACAP uses the PLM for booting. Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC designs that target the APU can be migrated to work with the Versal ACAP APU. The Versal ACAP RPU uses the same Arm® Cortex®-R5F processor with the same GIC as Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs. The functionality and programming models are very similar. UltraScale+ device designs that target the RPU can be migrated to work with the Versal ACAP RPU. When migrating to Versal ACAP, you must take into consideration the device driver changes, multiplexed I/O (MIO) configuration, and pinouts. For more information, see the Versal ACAP Technical Reference Manual (AM011).
