To complete an embedded processor design, you typically perform the following steps:

  1. Create a new Vivado Design Suite project.
  2. Create a block design in the IP integrator tool and instantiate a Xilinx processor, along with any other Xilinx IP or your custom IP.
  3. Generate Output Products of the IP in the block design with the correct synthesis mode option.
  4. Create a top-level wrapper and instantiate the block design into a top-level RTL design.
  5. Run the top-level design through synthesis and implementation, and then export the hardware to the Vitis software platform.
  6. Create your software application. In the Vitis software platform, associate the Executable Linkable File (ELF) file with the hardware design.
  7. Program into the target board.
