under the PROGRAM AND DEBUG
heading inside the Flow Navigator
The No Implementation Results Available
dialog will appear on the very first run of any new project. Proceed by clicking Yes
. Since synthesis and implementation have not yet been run these will be scheduled to run before the bitstream generation.
The Launch Runs
dialog now appears. Select the required options (defaults as shown are fine) and then click OK
Once the bitstream generation is complete the Bitstream Generation Completed
dialog will appear. Click Cancel
to dismiss this.
The generated bitstream can now be found in the impl_1
