  6. Click Finish to complete the example design creation phase, and this will open up the Vivado project with the template design you just created. You can open the block design to view the details of the platform design. By using the pre-built template, you can easily get a validated hardware design of the platform to move on to the next step. In your real design development procedure, you can use this as a baseline design and make further modifications on top of it.

  7. Click Generate Block Design from the Flow Navigator panel on the left, click Generate, and wait for the process to complete.

NOTE: A critical warning is displayed by Vivado when generating the Block Design. This is due to the fact that the Interrupt Controller IP has an unconnected input. This can be ignored as this input will be connected automatically by Vitis later in the flow.
