The IP Manager sheet lets you create, view, and delete IP modules created using the IP Module wizards. You can also export IP modules (to be imported into other XPE spreadsheets), and import modules from other XPE spreadsheets into your currently active spreadsheet.
Each IP module displayed in the IP Manager sheet represents the device resources used to implement one of the following in a Xilinx device:
- Distributed memory - Created Using the Memory Generator Wizard (for Distributed Memory).
- Block memory - Created Using the Memory Generator Wizard (for Block Memory).
- Memory interface - Created Using the Memory Interface Configuration Wizard.
- Transceiver interface - Created Using the Transceiver Configuration Wizard.
The IP Modules table indicates the power associated with each IP module created, as well as the power associated with the resource sheets populated by the IP module. As shown in the IP Modules table in the previous figure, IP modules might populate more than one resource sheet. For example, a block memory IP module might place rows in both the Block RAM sheet (BRAM column) and the Clock sheet (Clocking column).
In some cases, more than one resource will be included in a single column in the IP Modules table. For example, the Clocking column might include the power associated with clock nets as well as the power associated with clock managers such as the PLL and the MMCM, and the Transceiver column might include the power associated with Multi-Gigabit Transceivers (MGTs) as well as the power associated with a PCIe block.
