The petalinux-boot command boots MicroBlaze™ CPU, AMD Zynq™ devices, AMD Versal™ adaptive SoC, and AMD Zynq™ UltraScale+™ MPSoC with PetaLinux images through JTAG/QEMU. This tool provides two distinct workflows:

  • In petalinux-boot --jtag workflow, images are downloaded and booted on a physical board using a JTAG cable connection.
  • In petalinux-boot --qemu workflow, images are loaded and booted using the QEMU software emulator.

Either the --jtag or the --qemu is mandatory for the petalinux-boot tool. By default, the petalinux-boot tool loads binaries from the <plnx-proj-root>/images/linux/ directory.
