The Vivado Design Suite provides metrics to inform you about logic and routing inside the device. They provide an interactive way of analyzing a design rather than a static report.

To activate metrics, make sure that you have an open design. Select Window > Metrics. To enable a metric, right-click it and select Show. More than one metric can be added at a time. To disable a metric, right-click it and select Hide to remove it from the Device view. Select Hide All Metrics to hide all the enabled metrics in one click.

The following figure shows an example of the LUT Utilization per CLB metric:

  • The Metrics window shows the list of available metrics that can be shown using the right-click menu.
  • The Metric Properties window shows the color bins that the given metric has been graded by. You can modify the metric bins by enabling or disabling them, or by changing the colors. New bins can be added, or existing bins can be removed.
  • In the Device window, the metric bins have been overlaid to show the physical location where the metric levels have a higher impact.
  • The Metric Results window allows you to select and use the cross-probe with other design elements.
