IPI - is there any difference between 'create interface port' and 'make external'

Jump to solution

in IPI, if I right click on a port of an IP block, for example the S00_AXI port of an interconnect, in the drop down menu one can choose between :

 

- make external

- create interface port

 

Q: is there any difference between both?

They should behave the same way. Create Interface Port allows you examine name/vlnv before creation.

 

You can also select many pins and do Make External.
