This lab continues from the end of Lab 1 in this tutorial. You must complete Lab 1 prior to beginning Lab 2. If you closed the Vivado IDE, or the tutorial project, or the simulation at the end of Lab 1, you must reopen them.

Start by loading the Vivado Integrated Design Environment (IDE) by selecting Start > All Programs > Xilinx Design Tools > Vivado 2021.x > Vivado 2021.x.

  1. Your Vivado ML Editions installation might be called something other than Xilinx Design Tools on the Start menu.
  2. As an alternative, click the Vivado 2021.x Desktop icon to start the Vivado IDE.

The Vivado IDE opens. Now, open the project from Lab 1, and run behavioral simulation.

  1. From the main menu, click File > Project > Open Recent and select project_xsim, which you saved in Lab 1.
  2. After the project has opened, from the Flow Navigator click Run Simulation > Run Behavioral Simulation.

The Vivado simulator compiles your design and loads the simulation snapshot.
