I would like to have the Vivado or PlanAhead tool automatically use a third-party synthesis tool (e.g., Synplify) when selecting Synthesize Design in Flow Navigator or running synth_design in a Tcl flow.
Is there an interface option or tcl command that calls third-party synthesis tools in the background when using the Vivado or PlanAhead tools?
Are third-party synthesis tools integrated in the Vivado or PlanAhead tools?
Third-party synthesis tools are not integrated as part of the Vivado Design Suite or PlanAhead tool.
The output NGC file of a third-party synthesis tool, XST, or a Synplify project can be imported into the Vivado tool to create a new Vivado project and implement the synthesized design.
There are no interface options or hidden tcl commands to enable third-party synthesis tool integration. However, third-party synthesis tool integration is being considered for a future release.
