IP cache entries created for the project can be zipped up by the tool as a single package.

To create the zipped IP cache package, user needs to run config_ip_cache -zip_cache command to zip up all cache entries used by the current project into a zip file. Cache entries can be found in multiple places (project or global cache, user repositories).

The zip file can be used as your repository without unzipping the file and you can add it as a repository to the IP catalog identified in ip_repo_paths project property.

IP instances whose IP cache entries are found in the zipped repository do not need to be re-generated.

This would allow user to re-build the project with a much faster turn-around time especially when project design sources are distributed remotely or shared among team members.
