To simulate the entire system, including AI Engine graph and PL logic along with XRT-based host application to control the AI Engine and PL, for a specific board and platform, you must use the Vitis hardware emulation flow. This flow includes the SystemC model of the AI Engine, transaction-level SystemC models for the NoC, DDR memory, PL Kernels (RTL), and PS (running on QEMU). You can also include RTL logic and test bench PL logic for your platform or design. Details on the flow can be found in Running Hardware Emulation.
