  1. To build the design run the following commands.

    make aie
  2. After the ADF graph is compiled, run the AI Engine simulator (aiesimulator) to get additional profile data. This ensures the design is simulating correctly and generates extra profile information for performance analysis and optimizing the kernels.

    To run the simulator, run the following commands.

    make aiesim

    After running emulation a new directory, aiesimulator_output, is created and inside this directory, there is a file called aiesim-options.txt.

  3. Open the aiesim-options.txt and you should see content similar to the following.

  4. Close the text file.

    NOTE: To view all the aiesim_option.txt values, see Reusing AI Engine Simulator Options.

  5. Run the rest of the build process using the following commands.

    make kernels
    make xsa
    make host
    make package
