A set of example designs are hosted on GitHub in the XilinxCEDStore repository. These repositories can be accessed through Vivado, which can be refreshed with a valid internet connection including the Versal adaptive SoC CPM Tandem PCIe and DFx example design. You can also download or clone the GitHub repository to your local machine and point to that location on your PC. The example design can be generated for CPM4 (VCK190) and CPM5 (VPK120) targets. The following diagram intends to demonstrate the tandem PCIe and DFx features:
Note: The provided example designs are for reference only; they might or might not comply with the requirements for a production design. You are advised to perform extensive testing and verification before attempting to use it in a production.
