How to upgrade sysgen cores in IP catalog

Jump to solution

While in Simulink, when ready to commit your SysGen model, you double click  the System generator Icon. If compilation is set to IP Catalog, the Settings page has a field called Version. I increment this each time a do a new gen. When I refresh the repository in Vivado the new version and all the old versions show up on the list of available cores. What I'd like to do is upgrade the core I've instantiated as say version 1.1 to the new version 1.2 I just created. I haven't discovered an upgrade path aside from deleting the 1.1 version and adding the 1.2 version to my build.

The only other option I can see is to leave the versions alone and hope the tool notices the files are all changed. Yeah right.

The versions have to be numeric on the end. I labeled them 1.2_K7 since I was doing a Kintex 7 variant.

If the version number has changed, the tool will notice it and prompt you to run the normal IP Upgrade flow (report_ip_status).

Only the latest version of an IP should show up in the catalog.
