The soft IP AXI Interconnect is fully replaced by a combination of the integrated NoC resources and SmartConnect IP. When migrating your design, first consider using NoC resources for all memory access pathways as well as to reduce PL resource utilization and support the high-bandwidth connections. You can then use SmartConnect to accommodate some conversions onto the NoC or to offload traffic from a fully-utilized NoC network. When migrating your design to NoC resources, you must use Vivado IP integrator to instantiate the NoC IP in a block design.
