The Vivado Design Suite has two primary use models: Project Mode and Non-Project Mode. Both Project Mode and Non-Project Mode can be developed and used through either the Vivado IDE, or through Tcl commands and batch scripts. However, the Vivado IDE offers many benefits for the Project Mode, such as the Flow Navigator graphical workflow interface. Tcl commands are the simplest way to run the Non-Project Mode.
