The Vitis unified IDE supports python APIs to create and build the platform component. The platform component (.xpfm) is created from extensible XSA and system software files of the operating system (for example, PetaLinux). The platform component with no system software files for any operating system it is to run the baremetal applications.

Table 1. Python APIs: Platform Component
Python API Description Python API Example
create_platform_component Creates a new platform

For Baremetal: platform_comp=client.create_platform_component(name='platform', hw_design=<hw_xsa_path>)

For Linux: client.create_platform_component(name = platform_name, hw_design = <hw_xsa_path>, cpu = "psu_cortexa53", os = "linux", domain_name = "linux_a53")

add_domain Adds the domain to the platform microblaze = platform.add_domain(name = "microblaze", cpu = "microblaze_0", os = "standalone")
build Initiates a build of platform component
The Python script to create a platform component for baremetal application is described below:
# Add package: Vitis Python CLI
import vitis

# Create a Vitis client object -
client = vitis.create_client()

# Set Vitis Workspace

# Create Platform Component:
platform_comp=client.create_platform_component(name='platform', hw_design=<hw_extensible_xsa_path>)

# Build the platform component

After building the platform component, the output products are generated at:workspace > platform > export > platform > platform.xpfm
