2014.1 Vivado - Synthesis and Implementation go out-of-date during ELF file Association


When I associate ELF files initially, the Synthesis and Implementation runs do not go out-of-date.

  • When I replace ELF Files under Design Sources via Right Click --> Replace Elf File with another ELF file, the Synthesis and Implementation go out-of-date.
  • When I click on the ELF File, then open the Source File Properties Window, un-checking Implementation makes Implementation go out-of-date.


This situation only occurs when replacing ELF files, and not when adding or removing ELF files.

The solution is to re-run Synthesis and Implementation to return the status to up-to-date.

This issue is fixed in the Vivado 2014.2 release.
