Missing custom driver in exported HDF


Drivers for custom IP cores can be placed within the directory structure of the IP repository.

IP Packager uses this mechanism to create an example driver for a newly created custom IP.

When using the IP in an IPI design, the driver will be included in the exported HDF file.

However, if the IP has been placed in an IPI hierarchical block, the exported HDF is missing the Driver.


There are two solutions available:

  1. Use Vivado 2015.1 and apply the patches attached to this AR.
    Once the patch is applied, refresh the repository, reset the IPI output products, generate the output products and re-export to SDK.

  2. Move the Driver directory from the IP's repository to a new software repository location.
    Then add the new software repository location to SDK using SDK >Xilinx Tools >Repositories
