Sets the part on the current project. If no project is open, then a diskless project is created.


set_part [‑quiet] [‑verbose] <part>


Name Description
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
<part> Set current project's part to this part.


Change the part used by the current project for subsequent elaboration, synthesis, implementation, and analysis.

Tip: The part is changed for the current project only, and not for the in-memory design. You can change the part used when opening an existing design checkpoint using the -part option of the open_checkpoint or read_checkpoint commands.

This command is provided to let you change the part for the in-memory project of non-project based designs, and does not support project-based designs. For a project-based design set the PART property on the project as follows:

set_property PART xc7vx485tffg1158-2 [current_project]

Use the get_parts command to get a list of the available parts.

The set_part command creates an in-memory project for a non-project based design, or assigns the part to the existing in-memory project.

Note: For a discussion of Project Mode and Non-Project Mode refer to the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Design Flows Overview (UG892).

This command returns the part that the in-memory project is set to use, or returns an error if it fails.


-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<part> - (Required) Specifies the part to change to, or use in the current project or in-memory design.


The following example changes the part of the current in-memory project:

set_part xc7vx485tffg1158-2
