Vivado IP Packager - Creating a custom taxonomy for user's custom IP


I am packaging my own IP and would like to place the IP in a new taxonomy group in the IP Catalog, but I only seem to be able to select existing groups.

How can I create a custom taxonomy with the IP Packager?


A custom taxonomy (display grouping in the IP Catalog) can be set using Tcl commands; with the IP open in the IP Packager, run the following commands:

set new_taxonomy /my_ip/my_grouping
set taxonomy_list [get_property taxonomy [ipx::current_core]]
lappend taxonomy_list $new_taxonomy
set_property taxonomy $taxonomy_list
