SDK - [Hsi 55-2023] No IPI block design hardware handoff files present in the hardware definition file

Description

When creating a Hardware Platform in SDK, I see the following errors in the log console:

ERROR: [Hsi 55-2023] No IPI block design hardware handoff files present in the hardware definition file <path>/<hdf_filename>.hdf
ERROR: [Hsi 55-1451] Error: running open_hw_design.
ERROR: [Common 17-39] 'open_hw_design' failed due to earlier errors.

What is the reason for this?

Solution

This happens if the Hardware has been exported from Vivado with the Block Design (BD) as top level.

The solution is to create a wrapper for the BD in Vivado, set it as top, and re-export the Hardware to SDK.
