Developer can make the Vivado design changes in the ext_bdc_vma.bd after importing VMA except inside the hierarchy (VitisRegion.v). You can view connnection between HLS kernels to AIE inside the VitisRegion hierarchy. Refer to UG1393 to understand the design guidelines and limitations under the section “Vitis Export Flow Guidelines and Limitations”.
