Speeding up Synthesis in Vivado 2017.X via IDE

Following up on thread https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Synthesis/Speeding-up-Synthesis-in-Vivado-2017-X/m-p/833181#M24636, I would like to know where exactly in the Vivado IDE to set the options recommended, namely:

 

  • "the Incremental Compile Flow"
  • the Flow_RuntimeOptimized or Flow_Quick strategies

Thanks. Graham

Re: Speeding up Synthesis in Vivado 2017.X via IDE

Note that these settings are for Implementation and not Synthesis. Information on Incremental Compile Flow is in UG904 page 94:

 

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2017_4/ug904-vivado-implementation.pdf

 

In the IDE, these options are in Tools > Settings > Implementation. The Incremental Compile option is under the 'Options' header, and the Flow_RuntimeOptimized and Flow_Quick strategies are under the 'Strategy' drop-down list.
