DSim Cloud Xilinx Vivado Library Package
The Vivado library is supplied by Metrics (using the standard libraries available by Xilinx) and is made available to users on-demand on the remote compute. The library package is equivalent to the folders under the Vivado installation folder Xilinx/Vivado/<version>/data.
For more information on the Xilinx Vivado library functionality see the Xilinx Vivado website.
Accessing the Vivado Library
DSim Cloud comes with Vivado ML Enterprise 2022.1 and 2021.1. To load the Vivado package, uncomment the Vivado package entry in your mdc_config.yml:
- name: vivado version: "2022.1"
By default, DSim Cloud is configured to use Vivado 2022.1. To use a different version, change the version field to "2021.1" in your mdc_config.yml:
- name: vivado version: "2021.1"
To see how to change your mdc_config.yml, see DSim Cloud Configuration.
Loading a Vivado package also maps the corresponding precompiled libraries.
When the Vivado package is loaded, an environment variable VIVADO_HOME is set, which points to the current version being used by the remote compute. It is equivalent to the path of the Vivado installation folder Xilinx/Vivado/<version>/.
To see which version of the Vivado library is being used currently:
mdc envs | findstr VIVADO_HOME
Linux / Mac
mdc envs | grep VIVADO_HOME
To access the Vivado library, use %VIVADO_HOME% in your DSim commands. For example:
mdc dvlcom -a '%VIVADO_HOME%/data/gated/xilinx/axi_c2c_v1_0/hdl/axi_c2c_v1_0_rfs.v'
