To use the create interface port option:

  1. Right-click and select Create Interface Port, as shown in the following figure.

    This command creates ports on the interface pins which are groupings of signals that share a common function. The Create Interface Port command gives more control in terms of specifying the interface type and the mode (master/slave).

  2. In the Create Interface Port dialog box, shown in the following figure, specify the interface name, the Vendor, Library, Name, and Version (VLNV) field, and the mode field such as MASTER or SLAVE.

  3. Double-click external ports to see their properties, and modify them.

    In the following figure, the port shown is a clock input source, so you can specify different properties, such as frequency, phase, clock domain, any bus interface, the associated clock enable, associated reset and associated asynchronous reset (frequency).

  4. On an AXI interface, double-click the port to open the port configuration dialog box.
