Vivado Synthesis - How do I manually setup my HDL files?


If I import complex projects with many design files through the Vivado integrated design environment (IDE), the tool does not seem to understand the compilation order or find the right "top".

How can I work around this situation?


In these scenarios, you can turn off the "automatic update and compile order" feature, and instead turn on the "No update, manual compile order". This can be done by right-clicking on the "Design Source" folder in the "Sources" window, then clicking on the "Hierarchy Update" tab, followed by the selection of "No update, manual compile order". This option will give you control over the compilation of your HDL design files.
