In a microprocessor-based design such as a MicroBlaze design, an Executable and Linkable Format (ELF) file generated in the Vitis™ environment (or in other software development tool) can be imported and associated with a block design in the Vivado tool. A bitstream can then be generated for the design that includes the ELF contents for use on the target hardware. There are two ways in which you can add the ELF file to an embedded object.
