read_bd as DCP in non-project Tcl build

Jump to solution

I have a block design (bd) that I've generated using Vivado 2016.4. I want to be able to use its bd in the form of a design checkpoint (dcp) to speed up synthesis in a non-project Tcl build. The bd is not the top level file.

 

Here's what I do to generate the dcp from the bd:

  1. In Vivado right-click the bd file and select Generate Output Products...
  2. Under Synthesis Options select Out of context per Block Design
  3. Click Generate which produces bd's dcp file.

How do I read in the bd (now a dcp) when building? According to UG835 read_bd takes in "IPIntegrator design file name(s)".
