If you need to directly instantiate a block RAM or FIFO block into your design, the CORE Generator tool can be used. For more information on how to use the block RAM Generator or FIFO Generator IP cores, refer to the corresponding data sheets listed below for each IP core:
Once you generate either of these cores in the CORE Generator tool, the cores include an instantiation template (.veo file for verilog, .vho file for vhdl) that you can use to instantiate the core into your HDL code.
