The AMD Vitis™ software platform allows you to update a platform project with a new hardware by updating the software components under the hood. If your AMD Vivado™ project and its exported XSA are updated, this workflow needs to be executed manually so that the Vitis software platform can get the updated hardware specification. You can edit the settings after the software platform adjusts the software components as per the new hardware.

To change the hardware specification file of the platform project, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the platform component in the component view, and expand Settings, open the vitis-comp.json.
  2. Click Update XSA.
  3. Specify the source hardware specification file in pop-up window.

  4. Click open to select the XSA file.
