The Vivado IDE provides cross probing to RTL source files from the following windows:
- Schematic window (RTL elaborated, synthesis, or implementation)
- Netlist window (after synthesis or implementation)
- Device window (for an implemented design)
To cross probe, select a cell from any of these windows, and select the Go To Definition or Go To Source right-click command. The RTL source opens, and the line with the instance is highlighted.
