2021.1 English

To address the different needs in simulation scope, abstraction, and purpose, Xilinx provides dedicated flows for the various components of a Versalâ„¢ ACAP design, including the AI Engine, PS, and PL. In addition, Xilinx also provides the ability to co-simulate a complete system comprised of PL, PS and optionally AI Engine components. The following sections provide details on the scope and purpose of each of the simulation flows.

Note: The majority of these simulation flows are available in both the traditional design flow and the platform-based design flow. However, co-simulation of a complete system is only possible in the platform-based design flow.
