2022.2 English

The Vitis unified software platform provides application-level debug features which allow the host code, the kernel code, and the interactions between them to be efficiently debugged in either the Vitis IDE, or from the command line. The recommended debugging flow consists of three levels of debugging:

This three-tiered approach allows debugging the host and kernel code, and the interactions between them at different levels of abstraction. Each provides specific insights into the design and makes debugging easier. All flows are supported through an integrated GUI flow as well as through a batch flow using basic compile time and runtime setup options.

In the case of applications running on embedded processor platforms, some additional setup is required as described in Debugging on Embedded Processor Platforms.
