AD9467 HDL Coder adding Custom Reference Design - create_bc_cell issue

5 views (last 30 days)
in my existing reference design (ZC702+AD9467) i want to integrate a matlab connection to scope values. So i first tried Getting Started with demo reference design successfully. Now i worked through the Define and Register Reference Design and be lost of these issues:
Task "Create Project" unsuccessful. See log for details.
Synthesis tool log:
****** Vivado v2014.4.1 (64-bit)
## save_bd_design
## }
## create_root_design ""
ERROR: [BD 5-216] VLNV <> is not supported for this version of the tools.
ERROR: [Common 17-39] *'create_bd_cell'* failed due to earlier errors.
while executing
"create_bd_cell -type ip -vlnv axi_ad9467 "
(procedure "create_root_design" line 89)
invoked from within
"create_root_design """
(file "vivado_custom_block_design.tcl" line 422)
while executing
"source vivado_custom_block_design.tcl"
(file "vivado_create_prj.tcl" line 15)
Why couldn't the HDL Coder 'create_bd_cell'?

The Vivado error message is complaining that it cannot find an IP ( when HDL Workflow Advisor is creating the Vivado project.
It appears that your custom reference design need to use a custom IP (axi_ad9467) which is not in standard Vivado IP repository.
To add it to the reference design, please create a folder named "ipcore" in your reference design plugin folder, put your custom IP zip file (axi_ad9467) in that folder, and also register the folder in your reference design definition file plugin_rd.m: hRD.CustomFiles = {'ipcore'};
Then when you run Create Project step, HDL Workflow Advisor will copy the "ipcore" folder to the generated project, and add this project into Vivado IP repository.
Following doc page introduces the CustomFiles parameter.
