Split a large block design into multiple smaller ones

Jump to solution

I am doing a Pynq design, and the hardware side of it is just too large to comfortably fit into a single block design. Ideally, I'd like to refactor my block design into a top level design with blocks like processor, peripherals, etc, and then these in turn are implemented as further (sub)-block designs.

Is this possible at all? Is there an automatic refactoring tool to help me do this?

Hi @ralphrmartin ,

one way you can use the create Hierarchy method. Please select the IPs in your BD design and then right click and select create Hierarchy and give a name. this will move the selected IPs into a single block and that single block only seen in main BD. if you doubble click on newly created Hierarchy then it will open the IPs in another page.
