Xilinx Vivado Tool Tips & Tricks
So you’re using Vivado, and you’re frustrated with having to use both the GUI and batch-mode activities in the same project. We’ve figured out a neat way to automate that, and below is a template project that we’ve set up to help demonstrate the concept.
Automating the Project-Based Design Flow – Demonstrator Template
A fully functional FPGA design that demonstrates numerous scripts and automation techniques targeting the Xilinx Vivado toolset. Functionality includes the ability to experiment with a design using the Vivado Project Based Design Flow, launching synthesis and implementation runs from the command line, launching simulations using the Xilinx XSim simulator in both GUI and batch mode, version controlling a minimal set of files while supporting IP Integrator and Block Diagrams.
