The Vivado IDE does not support configuration readback of.rcdo and .rnpi files from a Versal device, however the PDI downloaded into a Versal adaptive SoC device can be verified using the verify_hw_devices Tcl command. The verify_hw_devices command compares the selected PDI's identification fields (image/node ID, unique ID, parent unique ID, and function ID) to the identification fields found on the programmed device.

To verify a PDI matches the images currently programmed into the Versal device:

  1. Launch the Vivado Hardware Manager and connect to the previously programmed target.
  2. In the Hardware Device Properties window, click the icon and select the PDI to verify the programmed device against.

  3. At the Vivado Tcl prompt, run the command verify_hw_devices [current_hw_device] to verify the Image IDs contained in the selected PDI against those found in the programmed device.
Note: For Versal architectures, the PDI verify feature is currently Tcl only.
