Xilinx SDK version 19.2

 

I installed just the Xilinx SDK 19.1 (not the Vivido package) a few months back and I’m using the SDK 19.1 for software code development. I’m now aware of the Vitis package and have discovered that the new version SDK 19.2 is part of the Vitis install. My questions are….

 

  1. Can I simply update my SDK to version 19.2 without having to download and install the Vitis package?
  2. If I must install the Vitis package to obtain version 19.2, will the Vitis package install the SDK 19.2 in a different directory or will it overwrite what I already have installed?

Re: Xilinx SDK version 19.2

I dont know personally,
but from what I have seen and heard , vitis is a complete change
Its not so much a new version of SDK, but a complete new tool.

I assume you have a back up any way ?

this might help

Re: Xilinx SDK version 19.2

Hi martin.haran@oracle.com ,

 

Each version of SDK is installed into its own directory SDK/<version>/instalation. This way you can have more than one version installed and switch between versions (one project in old version, second project in newer version).

Also I believe that you can obtain 19.2 from VIVADO (https://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.html/content/xilinx/en/downloadNav/vivado-design-tools/2019-2.html). So you do not have to install VITIS.

Re: Xilinx SDK version 19.2

HI martin.haran@oracle.com ,

 

Here are the answers for your query

1.Question: Can I simply update my SDK to version 19.2 without having to download and install the Vitis package?

Answer: Vitis is entirely new tool, Upgrading the SDK 2019.1 will not update the vitis tool. You need to install Vitis too

2. Question: If I must install the Vitis package to obtain version 19.2, will the Vitis package install the SDK 19.2 in a different directory or will it overwrite what I already have installed?

Answer:  if you install vitis package then it will install in  a saparate folder called Vitis in your local disk like below

{C:/xilinx/Vitis/2019.2}

SDK used to like this {C:/xilinx/SDK/2019.1}

Re: Xilinx SDK version 19.2

Hi martin.haran@oracle.com 

As @pvempati  and Other members mentioned, Vitis is an all-in-one tool and SDK is integrated into it.

Vitis is a feature-rich tool and you will be able to perform all the operations in Vitis that you were doing in SDK. 

 

You can migrate your SDK project to Vitis by referring to the link below,

You can refer to Embedded development flow in Vitis below,

Please feel free to post your queries here.

 

Best Regards,
Nutan
