The Vivado IDE provides a graphical way to
configure and view power, utilization, and DRC analysis results. The
report_power command lets you experiment with power
parameters and quickly estimate power at any stage of the design. The
report_utilization command lets you analyze the utilization
statistics of various types of device resources. The
report_design_analysis command lets you analyze critical path
characteristics and the complexity of the design to help identify and analyze problem
areas that are prone to routing congestion and timing closure issues. The
report_drc command let you configure and run a comprehensive
set of DRCs to identify problems that must be solved prior to generating the bitstream
for the design.
In the Vivado IDE, report results are
provided with links to select problem areas or offending objects. In addition, many
reports can write an RPX file to save the report results in an interactive report file
that can be reloaded into memory, with links to design objects. Reloading the report
reconnects the object links so that cross-selection between the report in the Vivado IDE and the design is enabled. For more
information, see the
Design Suite User Guide: Design Analysis and Closure
Techniques (UG906), or refer
report_xxx commands in the
Design Suite Tcl Command Reference Guide (UG835).
Report strategies enable you to define groups of reports and associate all the reports with a particular run. Report strategies can be created by using Tools→Settings→Strategies→Report Strategies. Individual reports can be specified for each step of a run. Report strategy is a property of a run. Setting report strategy on the run generates all specified reports when the run is launched.
