The Dynamic Function eXchange IP integrator Project Flow inserts the key requirements of DFX into the existing Vivado project solution, accessible within the Vivado IDE as well as via Tcl commands. Coupled with the Vitis tools, a full hardware and software environment can be created and managed. Key requirements include:

  • Creating Block Design Containers (BDC) to identify hierarchy in a project.
  • Defining BDCs as Reconfigurable Partitions within the design hierarchy.
  • Populating a set of Reconfigurable Modules for each Reconfigurable Partition.
  • Creating a set of top-level and module-level synthesis runs.
  • Creating a set of related implementation runs.
  • Managing dependencies as sources, constraints, or options are modified.
  • Checking rules and results.
  • Verifying configurations.
  • Generating compatible sets of full and partial programming images.
  • Delivering full and partial images to the Versal adaptive SoC target device.
