Does the Vivado simulator support incremental compilation?


When making changes in only one source file, the entire design is re-compiled for simulation.

Does the Vivado simulator support incremental compilation?


The current version of Vivado does not support incremental compilation.

This may be included in a future release of Vivado but at this time it is not scheduled.

Older UG900 (Vivado simulation) guides do document a -incremental option for the xelab command, however this is incorrect, and the current UG900 has removed this option.
