Getting Started

Download and install the SDSoC™ environment according to the directions provided in SDx Environments Release Notes, Installation, and Licensing Guide (UG1238). This guide provides detailed instructions and hands-on tutorials to introduce the primary work flows for project creation, specifying functions to run in programmable logic, system compilation, debugging, and performance estimation. Working through these tutorials is the best way to get an overview of the SDSoC environment, and should be considered prerequisite to application development.

Note: The SDSoC environment includes the entire tools stack to create a bitstream, object code, and executables. If you have installed the Xilinx® Vivado® Design Suite and Software Development Kit tools independently, you should not attempt to combine these installations with the SDSoC environment.
