Installing Data Center Platforms

For data center applications, you can configure your system for developing and debugging applications using the Vitis development environment, as well as running them on hardware. This does not require the actual accelerator card, but does require the installation of XRT, the deployment platform, and the development platform for each accelerator card you plan to develop applications for.
TIP: While the system does not require an accelerator card to develop applications, it is required to run and debug the application on hardware.

The platform includes information necessary for compiling and debugging new acceleration applications. It is a required part of the Vitis environment to support a specific accelerator card in the tool. Each accelerator card requires a platform that must be installed to support that platform in the Vitis environment.

Note: You must resolve any code host library dependencies.
