The Vitis Unified IDE provides fast responses to actions. It employs non-blocking build commands that allow you continue working and run multiple builds at the same time. If your system is sufficiently powerful, you can launch multiple actions together, that is the build software emulation and hardware emulation, or debug software emulation when building hardware emulation is still running.
The application building job can also launch multiple components in parallel. Building jobs for the referenced components can be launched in parallel.
The Parallel Build feature is disabled by default. You can enable it by command and selecting the setting.
