The following table shows the basic Non-Project Mode Tcl commands. When using
Non-Project Mode, the design is compiled using
commands. The sources are ordered for compilation and passed to synthesis. For
information on using the Vivado Design Suite Tcl
shell or using batch Tcl scripts, see Working with Tcl.
|Imports an EDIF or NGC netlist file into the Design Source fileset of the current project.
|Reads the Verilog (.v) and System Verilog (.sv) source files for the Non-Project Mode session.
|Reads the VHDL (.vhd or .vhdl) source files for the Non-Project Mode session.
|Reads existing IP (.xci or
.xco) project files for the Non-Project Mode
session. For Vivado IP (.xci),
the design checkpoint (.dcp) synthesized netlist is
used to implement the IP if the netlist is in the IP directory. If not,
the IP RTL sources are used for synthesis with the rest of the top-level
design. The .ngc netlist is used from the
.xco IP project.
Note: The .xco file is no longer supported in UltraScale device designs.
|Loads a design checkpoint into the in-memory design.
|Reads the .sdc or .xdc format constraints source files for the Non-Project Mode session.
|Reads existing IP Integrator block designs (.bd) for the Non-Project session.
|Used for multiple purposes. For example, it can be used to define design configuration, tool settings, and so forth.
|Compiles the design for synthesis if netlist sources are used for the session.
|Launches Vivado synthesis with the design top module name and target part as arguments.
|Performs high-level design optimization.
|Performs intelligent clock gating to reduce overall system power. This is an optional step.
|Places the design.
|Performs physical logic optimization to improve timing or routability. This is an optional step.
|Routes the design.
|Runs a variety of standard reports, which can be run at different stages of the design process.
|Generates a bitstream file and runs DRCs.
|Saves the design at any point in the flow. A design checkpoint consists of the netlist and constraints with any optimizations at that point in the flow as well as implementation results.
|Opens or closes the Vivado IDE with the current design in memory.
