2014.3 Vivado IP Flows - Changes to Open Example Project for generated IP cores in Vivado 2014.3

Description

In Vivado 2014.3, the following changes were made to the way an example project is opened.
 
These changes are primarily to reduce the path length for the example design files.

Solution

The changes that were implemented are:

  • The default example project name is <ipName>_ex instead of <ipName>_example

  • The default location of the new example project is parallel to the current project directory, instead of under the current project directory.

  • The example design files that are imported to the new project longer retain the directory structure that they had in the component.
    Instead they are all imported to the <example_project_dir>/imports directory, without preserving the directory structure.

Note:
If there are any example design source files that share the same basename but are in different directories, then the directory structure is retained, and the example design source files will be located where they currently are found.
