The difference between Implementation and Synthesize

Jump to solution

I'm new in Vivado and I can't specifically explain the difference between Implementation and Synthesize.

Both of them seems to do the same job.

I would appreciate any comments.

Thanks.

Looks like you are very new to Xilinx tools. Synthesis and Implementation doesn't do the same Job. 

Synthesis will convert the RTL code to the netlist. 

Implementation tool will take the netlist as input and does optimization, placement and routing. 

I would suggest you complete the below Design flows tutorial:

 https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2018_3/ug888-vivado-design-flows-overview-tutorial.pdf

Also, check for training material or course:
