Document Table of Contents Minimal Flow Example

The following example shows the minimal flow necessary to generate an AF. It uses the hello_afu sample AFU included in the OPAE SDK. The hello_afu sample can be used as template for AFU designs that require only a host device interface and no local memory or network port I/O.
The following is a synopsis of the minimal set of OPAE SDK commands required to generate an AF from the hello_afu sample AFU:
cd $OPAE_PLATFORM_ROOT/hw/samples/hello_afu

afu_synth_setup --source hw/rtl/filelist.txt build_synth

cd build_synth


The execution of these commands generates an AF (.gbs) image in the build_synth sub-directory. The rest of this section elaborates on the minimal flow steps.
