SdAccel 2017.2: How to get RTL kerenl ".xo" compiled i SDAccel GUI

Hi All,

 

I followed instructions in Chapter 3 of UG1023 and created ".xo" file for my RTL kernel which is generated in folder "sdx_imports"

 

There are two files "main.c" and "mult_add_core_rtl.xo" generated

 

Since I use my own "host.cpp", just took the "mult_add_core_rtl.xo"  to create SdAccel project in GUI. In other words the SRC folder has only "host.cpp" and "mult_add_core_rtl.xo"

 

Now the question is what flags need to be added in SDAccel GUI so that the compiler reads ""mult_add_core_rtl.xo" file and build kernel and then integrates with the rest of design

 

The Chapter 3, Page 26 "Using RTL kernels" asks to use the command "create_kernel". However I can not seem to find a place where to use this command in SdAccel GUI

 

Greatly appreciate any help you can provide here

 

Regards

Prasad
