The Versal™ ACAP Design Flow Assistant helps Xilinx customers better understand the design flows and details for successfully building Versal ACAP designs.
The Assistant takes you to detailed reference guides that are specific to your intended design needs, and provides links to more detailed information.

About the Versal ACAP Design Flows
There are two design flows for Versal ACAP:
Traditional Design Flow
In the traditional design flow, the entire PL portion of the system is defined in a single Vivado™ project.
This flow is very similar to the one traditionally used for Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoCs.
Platform-based Design Flow
In the platform-based design flow, the system is divided in two distinct elements: the platform and the processing system.
You can create these different elements with the Vivado tools or the Vitis environment. Once created, they are integrated to the platform using the Vitis environment.
This flow promotes concurrent development of the different elements of the system and greatly facilitates the integration process of heterogenous systems.
Please see the Versal ACAP Design Guide for more detailed information.
