Xilinx Documentation Navigator (DocNav) - Where can I find out more information?


I see a tool called Xilinx Documentation Navigator installed with my Xilinx Design Tools as well as available on the Download Center.

Where can I find more information about Xilinx Documentation Navigator?


The Xilinx Documentation Navigator is a free tool that can be used by any customer that is interested in, or is actively using, Xilinx products. This tool allows you to:

  • Find answers to your questions quickly through the integrated search
  • Manage documents on your desktop through the Download Manager
  • Always ensures you are reading the latest version of documentation

Detailed information about using the tool and its features can be found in the Online Help Menu which you can access after installation.

If you are a user of the older version of Xilinx Documentation Navigator (v1.2 or prior), that version can be uninstalled using the Windows Add/Remove Programs list once v2012.2 or later is installed. The new version also downloads files to a new location, so before uninstalling the older version, you will need to delete the PDF files by following these steps:

  • Right-click in the grid view.
  • Select "Delete Download Documents".
  • In the dialog box that pops up, check the option to "Delete All Downloaded Documents".
