The AMD Vitis™ Software Emulation flow offers a fast functional simulation of the entire system that helps to quickly verify the system design. The system design includes AI Engine graph, PL logic and the PS, which is a XRT-based host application to control the AI Engine, and PL. The software emulation flow uses HLS-C based kernels or C models of the RTL based kernels for the PL, the x86 functional model of the AI Engine, and the PS. Optionally, you can also configure software emulation to use the Arm® QEMU emulator model of the PS.

Note: The Software Emulation flow is not supported for AIE-ML designs.
