IP core instantiation

Hello, 

 

Can I instantiate an IP core from SOPC in my vhd code? :confused:  

 

I want to make a Modbus slave core and I'd like to use the FIFOed UART (or default UART) component as receiver/transmitter. My vhd code would control the core by accessing its registers (TX,RX,STATUS,CONTROL...) and should do the Avalon interface. 

 

Briefly, I want to control the UART signals that are currently managed by the Avalon interface. Can I do this? 

 

Thanks in advance,

You've got a couple of options and these depend on the core itself. 

 

1 - Generate a fake SoPC builder system and steal the generated HDL files. 

2 - If the component has the HDL code in its install directory, you can steal it from there.

I didn't find the HDL code in its install directory, but the first option helped me. 

 

Thanks Jake..
