The Vivado IDE includes an Hierarchy window, which is useful for viewing the hierarchy of a design. To invoke the Hierarchy view for any selected logic, do one of the following:

  • In the Netlist or Schematic window, select Show Hierarchy from the right-click menu.

These windows have full cross probing support. Logic selected in the Netlist or Schematic window is highlighted in the Hierarchy window.
