The Vivado IDE provides cross probing to RTL source files from the following windows:

  • Schematic window (RTL elaborated, synthesis, or implementation)
  • Netlist window (after synthesis or implementation)
  • Device window (for an implemented design)

To cross probe, select a cell from any of these windows, and select the Go To Definition or Go To Source right-click command. The RTL source opens, and the line with the instance is highlighted.
