Creating a New Hardware Platform Specification

You can now drag and drop a valid HDF or XML hardware design file to the Project Explorer view or drag the system.hdf from one Xilinx SDK instance to another, to create a hardware project.
Note: Invalid HDF files or files other than HDF or XML hardware design files will result in appropriate error or warning messages in the SDK Log view.

  1. Click File > New > Project to open the New Project wizard.
  2. Select Xilinx > Hardware Platform Specification.
  3. Click Next.
  4. In the Project name field, type a name for the Hardware Platform Specification project.
  5. Select the Hardware Platform Specification XML file.
    Note: Hardware Platform Specification XML can be exported by either Project Navigator or Vivado®.

  6. Click Finish to create your hardware platform specification project.
