A custom platform is a bootable design to which the Vitis linker adds the adaptable subsystem. The custom platform must contain the following base components:

  • A base hardware design exported from the Vivado Design Suite
  • A base software design that includes a Linux kernel, root file system, and device tree
    Note: Alternatively, bare-metal is also supported.

For information on platform creation using the Vivado tools, see Creating and Generating Platforms.
