Introduction:

The Xilinx Vivado Synthesis tool may run out of memory during compilation. One of the options suggested in https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/64434.html is to start Vivado with an addtional "-stack 2000" argument.

InTime supports this extra argument via the intime.ini file as follows:

[user@host server]$ cd ~/.plunify/<user>_<mac_address>
[user@host server]$ vi intime.ini

## an example of how intime.ini should be ## 
[xilinx]
vivado\arguments\stack=2000

Applies to:

  • Linux Operating System
  • Windows Operating System
