Working with synthesis backends is painful and requires advanced debugging. For most things, we recommend not installing these tools yourself. If you're a Cornell Student, you can use our lab server, Gorgonzola.
There are two ways to get
fud working with Vivado.
fud supports invoking these tools over SSH. You have to tell
fud the username and hostname
for a server that has these tools installed:
# vivado fud config stages.synth-verilog.ssh_host <hostname> fud config stages.synth-verilog.ssh_username <username> # vivado hls fud config stages.vivado-hls.ssh_host <hostname> fud config stages.vivado-hls.ssh_username <username>
vivado_hls have to be on the path of the remote machine
for this to work.
If you need the names to be something else, file an issue.
fud currently does not support other names.
We don't provide installation instructions for this. However,
fud will look for
vivado-hls binaries on the system. If these are installed, you can
fud to invoke these tools. You can change the paths
fud looks for with
fud config stages.synth-verilog.exec <path> # update vivado path fud config stages.vivado-hls.exec <path> # update vivado_hls path
