Creating a New Project

  1. Create a new project in the SDx™ IDE (lab3) for the ZC702 platform and Linux System configuration using the design template for Matrix Multiplication and Addition.
  2. Click on the tab labeled lab3 to view the SDx Project Settings. If the tab is not visible, in the Project Explorer double click on the project.sdx file under the lab3 project.
  3. In the HW Functions panel, observe that the madd and mmult functions already appear in the list of functions marked for hardware acceleration.
  4. To get the best runtime performance, switch to use the Release configuration by clicking on the Active Build Configuration option and then selecting Release. You could also select Release from the Build icon, or by right-clicking the project and selecting Build Configurations > Set Active > Release. The Release build configuration uses a higher compiler optimization setting than the Debug build configurations.
