13.x System Generator for DSP - How to run multi-threading in Sysgen Design?

Description

My CPU has more than one core.

How Can I let System Generator take advantage of Multiple processor when running a design?

Solution

In System Generator, you can set the xflow option in the Sysgen token if the compilation type is Bitstream.

In the xflow option, use the -mt switch in MAP and PAR.

It performs multi-threading during the MAP and PAR processes.

For more details on how to create xflow options Files, refer to chapter 23 of http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx13_4/devref.pdf
