2.2. Generating and Configuring the EMIF IP

The following steps illustrate how to generate and configure the EMIF IP. This walkthrough creates a DDR5 interface, but the steps are similar for other protocols. (These steps follow the IP Catalog (standalone) flow; if you choose to use the Platform Designer (system) flow instead, the steps are similar.)

  1. In the IP Catalog window, select External Memory Interfaces IP. (If the IP Catalog window is not visible, select View > IP Catalog.)

    Figure 19. IP Catalog
  2. In the IP Parameter Editor, provide an entity name for the EMIF IP (the name that you provide here becomes the file name for the IP) and specify a directory. Click Create.

  3. The parameter editor has multiple tabs where you must configure parameters to reflect your EMIF implementation.
