Features

  • Import your existing IPs as IP-XACT components
  • Create new IP-XACT components and generate their HDL module headers
  • Reuse IP-XACT files from any standard compatible vendor
  • Reuse the IPs in your designs and connect them with wires and buses
  • Create multilevel hierarchies, where a design has multiple sub-designs
  • Configure component instances in designs, including the sub-designs
  • Use generator plugins to create HDL with wiring and parameterization
  • Use memory designer to preview memory maps and address spaces in your hierarchy
  • Package software to IP-XACT components and map them to hardware
  • Generate makefiles that build executables with rules defined in IP-XACT components
