V++ usage is like the following:

v++ -l <kernel> --platform <extensible xsa> -s -g  -t <target> -o fixed.xsa

The options is explained like the following:

  • -l: run a link mode and specify the kernel

  • --platform: specify the extensible XSA file

  • -s: do not delete the intermedia file

  • -g: generate code for debugging

  • -t: specify the target, HW or HW emulation

  • -o: specify the output file name

Linking XSA file directly can provide fast track for hardware developers to iterate hardware designs​.
