This tutorial targets AIE-ML device, but shares test cases and description files with AIE 04-packet-switching.

IMPORTANT: Before beginning the tutorial make sure you have installed the AMD Vitis™ software platform 2023.2. The Vitis release includes all the embedded base platforms including the VEK280 ES1 base platform that is used in this tutorial. In addition, ensure that you have downloaded the Common Images for Embedded Vitis Platforms from this link.

The ‘common image’ package contains a prebuilt Linux kernel and root file system that can be used with the AMD Versal™ board for embedded design development using the Vitis tools.

Before starting this tutorial, run the following steps:

  1. Go to the directory where you have unzipped the Versal Common Image package.

  2. In a Bash shell, run the /**Common Images Dir**/xilinx-versal-common-v2023.2/environment-setup-cortexa72-cortexa53-xilinx-linux script. This script sets up the SDKTARGETSYSROOT and CXX variables. If the script is not present, you must run the /**Common Images Dir**/xilinx-versal-common-v2023.2/

  3. Set up your ROOTFS and IMAGE to point to the rootfs.ext4 and Image files located in the /**Common Images Dir**/xilinx-versal-common-v2023.2 directory.

  4. Set up your PLATFORM_REPO_PATHS environment variable to $XILINX_VITIS/base_platforms.

This tutorial targets VEK280 ES1 board for 2023.2 version.
