Run hardware emulation with the following command.

make run TARGET=hw_emu

For hardware emulation (hw_emu), the kernel code is compiled into a hardware model, which is run in a hardware simulator, while the rest of the system uses a C simulator. Building and running takes longer but provides a detailed, cycle-aware, view of kernel activity. This target is useful for testing the functionality of the logic that runs in the FPGA and for getting initial performance estimates.

NOTE: For instructions on how to build the host software and hardware, refer to the Vitis Getting Started tutorial.
