Creating and Viewing an HDL Instantiation Template
An instantiation template is
a file containing code that can be used to instantiate a module into
your design. You can create and view an HDL instantiation template
for an HDL, schematic, intellectual property (IP), embedded processor,
or System Generator design module using this process.
To Create and View an Instantiation Template
- In the Design panel, select Implementation from the drop-down list.
- In the Hierarchy pane, select the source file for which
you want to create an instantiation template.
- In the Processes pane, expand Design Utilities, and double-click the View HDL Instantiation Template process.
Project Navigator runs the processes necessary to create the
template. A read-only template file is created and displays in your
text editor. You can cut and paste the template contents into your
You must modify the signal names in your HDL file.
