Vivado implementation consists of a number of smaller processes such as:

  • Opt Design (opt_design)
  • Power Opt Design (power_opt_design) (optional)
  • Place Design (place_design)
  • Post-Place Power Opt Design (power_opt_design) (optional)
  • Post-Place Phys Opt Design (phys_opt_design) (optional)

  • Post-Route Phys Opt Design (phys_opt_design) (optional)

The Vivado tools let you run implementation as a series of steps, rather than as a single process.
