To expedite the creation of a subsystem or a design, the IP integrator offers Block Automation and Connection Automation. The Block Automation feature can be used to configure a basic processor-based design and some complex IP subsystems, while the Connection Automation feature can be used to automatically make repetitive connections to different pins or ports of the design. IP integrator also supports all the Xilinx evaluation boards in the Platform Board Flow, as described below in Using the Platform Board Flow. This lets the Connection Automation feature connect the I/O ports of the design to components on the target board. Designer assistance also helps with defining and connecting clocks and resets. Using Designer Assistance not only expedites the design process but also helps prevent unintended design errors.
