Updating the Hardware Specification

The Vitis™ software platform allows you to update a platform project with a new hardware by updating the software components under the hood. If your Vivado® project and its exported XSA have been updated, this workflow needs to be executed manually so that the Vitis software platform can get the updated hardware specification. You can edit the settings after the software platform adjusts the software components as per the new hardware.

To change the hardware specification file of the platform project, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the platform project in the Explorer view, and select Update Hardware Specification.
  2. Specify the source hardware specification file in the Update hardware specification for test page.
  3. Click OK to see the hardware specification status.
