2013.3 Vivado IP Integrator - Cannot assign external bus interface to AXI Slave on AXI APB bridge


In a simple Vivado IP Integrator project containing an AXI APB bridge, I cannot assign an External Bus Interface to the AXI Slave on the AXI APB bridge.

How can this be addressed?


To work around this issue, download the attached patch and follow the instructions below.

Step 1: 

Unzip and copy this folder onto your local machine.

Step 2:

In the Vivado tool, open the IP Catalog under Project Manager and select IP Settings as shown below:


Step 3: 

Point to the local_ip_cores folder from the zip file.

Select Apply, and OK.


This IP will then be available in the IP catalog.

This IP is the same version (2.0) as the version in the 2013.3 install. 

However, IP added in the repository will take precedence.

This issue is fixed starting in Vivado 2013.4.
