Vivado - "write_verilog" command with "-rename_top" option does not work

Description

When the command "write_verilog -rename_top <new_entity_name> <HDL_netlist>.v" is used, the Verilog file created does not rename the entity/module.

Solution

This is correct behavior.

The "-rename_top" option of the "write_verilog" command only works with "-mode funcsim/timesim".


The default option for write_verilog is "-mode design".

For the VHDL command "write_vhdl", the default mode option is "-mode funcsim" so with the same command parameters, the tool will rename the entity/module:


"write_vhdl -rename_top <new_entity_name> <HDL_netlist>.vhdl".
