Importing VCD File into Vivado

Hello,

I know that vivado can create a vcd file when either a simulation or an ila is open.However, I cannot find anything online that explains if vivado has a way of importing and viewing a previously captured vcd file. In other words, can vivado display the vcd file that it previously created. 

Thanks,

Re: Importing VCD File into Vivado

The documetation you provided shows you how to create a vcd file using Vivado. My question is: can vivado display a waveform of the data contained in a vcd file?

No, it's not supported.

You can alternatively view the vcd waveform in 3rd party tools like GTKWave.
