vivado 2014 - using bare HDL file without IP packaging

Jump to solution

I'm using vivado 2014 and want add a hdl file into the design diagram.

 

Is there anyway to use it without packing this bare file into an IP?

 

Thanks.

Yes there is no other option. You need to package vhdl file

Package your design using Vivado IP packager. After this add the IP repository to your block design project IP catalog. After this you can see your custom IP in "ADD IP" of block design.

How can I do that ? From the flow navigator or right click in the block design window?

 

I didn't saw an option called "add file". 

 

There's an "add sources" option in the project manager menu, but it can just add diagram design files..

The right click in the block design windows just have something like "add IP".

 

Thanks again.

I mean, I want make the HDL file show up as a block in the diagram design windows. Don't know how to operate it.

 

I feel that it's too stupid to package every single HDL file into an IP in some light applications.
