Create a new segment.


create_bd_addr_seg ‑range <arg> ‑offset <arg> [‑quiet] [‑verbose]
    [<parent_addr_space>] [<slave_segment>] <name>


The newly created segment object, "" if failed.


Name Description
-range Range of segment. e.g. 4096, 4K, 16M, 1G
-offset Offset of segment. e.g. 0x00000000
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
[<parent_addr_space>] Parent address space of segment
[<slave_segment>] Slave segment of the created segment
<name> Name of segment to create




Create a new address segment object, bd_addr_seg, in the current IP integrator subsystem design.

This command returns the newly created master address segment object, or returns nothing if it failed.


-range <arg> - (Required) Range, or size, of address segment to create expressed as an integer or hexadecimal value. The range should be specified as a number of bits expressed as a power of 2, such as 4096, or as an amount of memory to allocate such as 4K, 16M, 1G.

-offset <arg> - (Required) Offset of the address segment. Written as an integer or hexadecimal value, such as 0x00000000.

-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<parent_addr_space> - (Required) Defines the parent address space of the segment.

<slave_segment> - (Required) Maps a slave address segment of the master address segment being created.

<name> - (Required) The name of the master address segment to create.


The following example creates address segments for the Data and Instruction address spaces of the Microblaze core:

create_bd_addr_seg -range 0x10000 -offset 0x41200000 \
   [get_bd_addr_spaces microblaze_1/Data] \
   [get_bd_addr_segs microblaze_1_axi_intc/s_axi/Reg] SEG1
create_bd_addr_seg -range 0x40000000 -offset 0x0 \
   [get_bd_addr_spaces microblaze_1/Instruction] \
   [get_bd_addr_segs microblaze_1_local_memory/ilmb_bram_if_cntlr/SLMB/Mem] \
