To verify the DFX platform functionality for PL kernels, run the following tests

  1. Create an acceleration project with a PL kernel (for example, Vector Addition). Test the design on hw-emu and hw. In this step, boot with static region and configure the RM on hardware. The hw-emu cannot fully reflect the configuration process but it can help to find potential issues in early stage.

  2. Create an acceleration project with another PL kernel (for example, Burst Read Write). Reboot the board and test the design on hw-emu and hw. In this step, you are perform the same action as step 1 but verifying if another kernel is working as expected.

  3. Reboot the board and test the reconfiguration function by configuring a PL kernel design (Vector Addition in this case). Next, re-configure a new PL kernel (Burst Read Write in this case) design without reboot and check its results.

The user flow for configuring the XCLBIN to DFX platforms and flat platforms are identical.
