Vivado installation on Linux
Vivado is the new FPGA design tool from Xilinx. It replaces ISE and XPS tools for new Xilinx's products. By default no Armadeus board has a new FPGA supported by Vivado, but, with the APF6, we can use Artix7 on a daughter board (or with Xilinx dev-kit), thanks to PCIe, and enjoy this new Xilinx tool. This page is a tutorial on how to install Vivado on Debian Linux host computer.
