The Vivado IDE provides an environment to analyze the design from several different perspectives. When you open a synthesized design, the software loads the synthesized netlist, the active constraint set, and the target device.

To open a synthesized design, select Open Synthesized Design from the Flow Navigator or the Flow menu.

With a synthesized design open, the Vivado IDE opens a Device window, as shown in the following figure.

From this perspective, you can examine the design logic and hierarchy, view the resource usage and timing estimates, or run design rule checks (DRCs). For more information, see the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Design Analysis and Closure Techniques (UG906)
