The AMD Vivado™ Design Suite IP integrator lets you create complex system designs by instantiating and interconnecting IP cores from the Vivado IP catalog onto a design canvas. You can create designs interactively through the IP integrator design canvas GUI, or programmatically using a Tcl programming interface. You typically construct designs at the AXI-interface level for greater productivity; but you can also manipulate designs at the port level for more precise design control.
This tutorial walks you through the steps for building a basic IP subsystem design using the IP integrator. You instantiate a few IPs in the IP integrator and stitch them up to create an IP subsystem design. While working through this tutorial, you are introduced to the IP integrator GUI, run design rule checks (DRC) on your design, and integrate the design into a top-level design in the Vivado Design Suite. Finally, you run synthesis and implementation and generate a bitstream on the design.
