In VersalĀ® ACAP, various Hardened IP or Hard IPs are available. Most of these require interface to the GTs for I/O connectivity. You can configure the Hard IPs from the Hard_Blocks tab. Hard IP generation is facilitated through a wizard, for all the Hard IPs. The PDM wizard generates GT's (GTY, GTYP & GTM) with required link speed used in Hard Blocks with and populates them in the corresponding sheet. Type and link speed of GT can be selected in the drop-down list of each wizard. Based on the link speed of the GT's and total bandwidth used for the Hard IP instance, PDM computes the number of GTs required automatically.

Editing and deleting IPs are also wizard based, that is, the configuration cannot be overwritten manually on individual cell. Select the Manage IP section to edit the IP configurations in the Summary tab. You need to select the IP type and module name which is intended to modify and make changes accordingly.
