System generator for DSP 2013.3 - xlTimingAnalysis error


UG958 page 408 states that the xlTimingAnalysis command is introduced since Vivado 2013.3 but when this command is run it generates an error message saying unreferenced command.

The same command works correctly in ISE.

In ISE System Generator it can be found under  ISE\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\sysgen\bin\nt\xlTimingAnalysis.

No similar command is seen in the Vivado Install directory.


xlTimingAnalysis was added to the 2013.3 version of the UG958 document but does not work in Vivado.

In ISE Sysgen it was possible to run thexlTimingAnalysis function on a previously generating timing and power analysis created directory where "Timing and Power Analysis" was chosen as the compilation target.

This is not an option in Vivado Sysgen so this command does not exist.
