How to use customized IP from the Managed IP location in block design?

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

Either there is missing capability in Vivado flow or I can't find it.

I would like the following:

 

1. Create the "Manage IP" project where I collect several customized IPs from IP Catalog.

I want the same IPs to be used in several projects and to be customized exactly the same way.

 

2. Create a new project and use the IP Integrator flow (AKA Block Design)

 

3. Instantiate my preconfigured IPs from Manage IP project in Block Design.

 

I know how to import the managed IPs in my new project but there is no way to put them as instances in the diagram. It seems that these IPs can be only used in the HDL source flow.

 

I'm using Vivado 2015.3. If there is another thread in the forum for this or any user guide/video please redirect me to it.

 

Thanks

Chris

This issue has been on my radar as well. As of now I believe it's still not possible, but according to the last post in the thread below from @vemulad, it's on Xilinx's roadmap.

rjsefton - thanks for this reply.

Your link to other thread was very helpful. It confirmed what I suspected. There is also one workaround that is useful. Still this is odd but I hope Xilinx will solve it quickly in next versions.
