There are two ways to add new block designs (for which the DFX designs are each RMs) to an existing BDC:
  1. If a BDC exists on the static design canvas, a new BD can be added from block designs that are present in the project. Double-click on the BDC to see the list of current BDs already assigned to that BDC. Use the + icon to pick from a list of compatible BDs currently in the project and unassigned to that BDC. If port lists do match the BDC definition, a BD will not appear in the list.

  2. New block designs can be created from an existing BDC. Right-click on the DFX-enabled BDC and select Create Reconfigurable Module. Supply an appropriate name for the new RM and click OK to generate a new BD source. The new block design will contain no IP, but all the ports have been imported from the BDC definition, so it will be compatible from the start.
