Bitstream generation can be done in two ways. The first is using the standard DFX approach, where a full design is open in Vivado and both full and partial bitstreams can be generated. Using the Abstract Shell approach, you do not create multiple configurations as the standard flow uses, as each RM is implemented on its own, independent of the full static top. However, any possible configuration can be created by linking the full static checkpoint with one RM checkpoint per RP. With a full configuration open in memory, you can call write_bitstream in the traditional manner. This by default produces all full and partial bitstreams for this design image. Use the -no_partial_bitfile or -cell options to create only full or only partial bit files, respectively.
