2014.2 Vivado IP Integrator - How to export some information from a block diagram to an external file, to be accessed without using Vivado

Description

I want to provide a description of a Block Diagram in a .pdf or .html file for a software engineer.

The file needs to include the IP version and base address configuration.

This is so that the software team can become familiar with the hardware platform without installing Vivado.

Solution

This data is available but needs to be gathered from a number of sources:


  1. Right Click in the Block Diagram and select "Generate PDF".
     
  2. Type "report_ip_status -file ip_status.txt" to get the IP version.
     
  3. In the Address Editor Tab, right-click export spreadsheet.
    This will tell you the address maps.
     
  4. There are also handoff files for SDK that are generated when the output products are generated.
    This is in the form of a hwdef.xml file.
    This will discuss the address maps.
