system requirement Vivado

Hi, I am using a zynq XC7Z010 with Vivado, why does the Xilinx memory page say 1GB RAM minimum when I see people say as a recommeded would be around 16GB.

Currently I have an i5-4210M CPU @ 2.60GHz and 8GB RAM with SSD. I find it a bit too slow. Would having 16GB RAM help or should the processor be changed also.

My current design is basic, only a fraction of what I need to do, I hate having to wait quite some time just to change a since constant.

 

Thanks

Robert

Hi @zegarelli

For your target device you just need around 2 GB and since you have 8GB, it is more than sufficient.

By the way are you seeing any run-time issues?

Thanks,Vijay

Re: system requirement Vivado

No run-time issues, just it's slow to compile everytime changes are made. How much time should it take to compile on a system like this?

Is there a way to make it compile faster, I don't need the design optimized for RF, it's just low MHz signals.

Re: system requirement Vivado

Hi @zegarelli

The run time depends on the deisgn and other parameters like how your processor is loaded.

Try running a example design to ruleout design specific issues.

Thanks,Vijay
