PYNQ-DPU without use .xmodel


I want to run some deep-learning algorithms on the DPU using a.bit file instead. xmodel Is it possible to do that?

Thank you

Hi there,

If you want to use the DPU you will need the Vitis AI runtime (VART) API. In order to use VART, you need a .xmodel for the DPU to be able to run your model. I’m not aware of communicating with the DPU without the VART API, but maybe you can ask the Vitis AI maintainers.


Hi @skalade

Thank you for your suggestions.
