  2. Open a new project with the desired device.
  3. Add all the IP source files to the project generated during step 1.
  4. Synthesize and implement the design.


For generating the wrappers from the wizard and using them in a user design:

  1. Generate the IP using an equivalent HCG package device.
    Example: For xc7vh870tflg1932-2G device, select xc7vh870thcg1932-2G device.
