The Black Box Configuration Wizard opens automatically when a new black box block is added to a model.

Note: Before running the Configuration Wizard, ensure the VHDL or Verilog you are importing meets the specified Black Box HDL Requirements and Restrictions.

For the Configuration Wizard to find your module, the model must be saved in the same directory as the module you are trying to import.

Note: The wizard only searches for .vhd and .v files in the same directory as the model. If the wizard does not find any files it issues a warning and the black box is not automatically configured. The warning looks like the following:
Figure 1. Warning

After searching the model's directory for .vhd and .v files, the Configuration Wizard opens a new window that lists the possible files that can be imported. An example screenshot is shown below:

Figure 2. Files to Import

You can select the file you would like to import by selecting the file, and then pressing the Open button. At this point, the configuration wizard generates a configuration M-function, and associates it with the black box block.

Note: The configuration M-function is saved in the model's directory as <module>_config.m, where <module> is the name of the module that you are importing.
