The InTime design optimization software can be run on the command-line or from a Tcl script. By inserting a single command in your existing Vivado Tcl script, you can invoke InTime to optimize your design.

In addition, InTime supports designs created in Vivado's non-project and project modes as well.


  • Latest version of InTime installed.
  • The desired Vivado version and license are properly registered in InTime (Configuration Guide).
