NOTE: In this tutorial, run all instructions from the reference-files directory.

Although some host code optimizations perform well with the hardware emulation, accurate runtime information and the running of large test vectors require the kernel to be executed on an actual accelerator card. Generally, the kernel is not expected to change during host code optimization, so the kernel only needs to be compiled to hardware once for this tutorial.

Run the following makefile command to compile the kernel to the specified accelerator card.

make TARGET=hw DEVICE=xilinx_u200_gen3x16_xdma_2_202110_1 xclbin

NOTE: This build process can take several hours, but the kernel compilation must be completed before you can analyze the impact of optimizations on the host code performance.
