Building and Running the Application

After the host program and the kernel code is written, you can build the application, which includes building the host program and platform file (xclbin). The build process follows a standard compilation and linking process for both the host program and the kernel code. However, the first step in building the application is to identify the build target, indicating if you are building for test or simulation of the application, or building for the target hardware. After building, both the host program and the FPGA binary, you will be ready to run the application.
