In this step, you launch the
simulator GUI by running the
xsim command with the simulation snapshot that you generated using
xelab command in Step 2. After you complete this step, you can use
the Vivado simulator GUI to explore the design in more detail.
In the same command window that you used for Step #2, type the following command:
xsim run_sineGen -gui -wdb simulate_xsim.wdb -view xsim_waveConfig
run_sineGen -gui: Specifies the simulation snapshot that you generated using
xelab, and launches Vivado simulator in GUI mode.
-wdb: Specifies the file name of the simulation waveform database file to output, or write, upon completion of the simulation run.
-view: Opens the specified waveform configuration file within the Vivado simulator GUI.
