    > **NOTE:** You can find the `sd_card.img` file in **package** and **package_aie_debug** directories. The `sd_card.img` in **package_aie_debug** directory is for hardware debug purpose. It stops AI Engine after loading and waits for the run instruction from the debugger. The one in the **package** directory is for free running. So choose `sd_card.img` in **package** directory for SD card free running.
  1. Format your SD card FAT32 partition using the sd_card.img file.

  2. Start a UART terminal connected to the COM ports of the VCK190

  3. Insert your SD card into your board, and power on your board. You should see the application running successfully with no error.
