IP Catalog generated VHD files standalone or need dependencies

My question is that whether the *.vhd file generated using MegaWizard within Quartus Prime's Installed IP contains dependencies to other files other than .vhd (like for example *.bsf, *.cmp, *.inc, *.qip). If not, how to create a standalone vhd file for any IP? Can I use DSP builder? 

 

Thanks!

All of those files have no dependencies. You can use the vhd file on its own. 

The bsf is for graphical designs 

.cmp is vhdl component for copying of you have to use a component 

.inc is ahdl include file 

.qip is quartus include file 

 

You only need the vhdl file
