Import DSP builder component into Qsys

Honored Contributor II



Someone delivered a block to me generated in DSP builder. 

I add the *hw.tcl file. 

But that only defined the interfaces for me. 

Do I have to manually search for and import all of the VHDL files under the hierarchy (there are many)? 

Or is there a simple way to automatically recover the list of VHDL files that are required for synthesis? 


Thanks Martin

The hw.tcl file should lists the files it needs. If you open it in a text editor, you should see lines that start add_fileset_file or add_file (depending on what version of DSP Builder they used). 


Also, if you generate in Qsys for synthesis, you should get a qip file which you would normally add to your quartus project. If you archived the project and unarchived to another location I suspect Quartus would only take the files specified in the QIP (leaving any intermediate or simulation files).
