The background: I have to use Keil in my job and honestly - I don't like it much. The debug is great, but the editor is lacking in many features compared to other IDEs. I was trying to find a working extension to STM32CubeIDE to integrate Keil's toolchain (build/rebuild/clean) and parse all...

The background: The example solution is focused on the I2C interface. The walk-through is similar for every single interface. Adding entry to the board.xml file Add in <interfaces> section: <interface mode="master" name="iic_main" type="xilinx.com:interface:iic_rtl:1.0"...

The problem: In Vivado in the IP Packager when I was trying to make a custom component with mating interfaces to control PCIe4 IP Core, I couldn't do it because in the IP Packager PCIe4 control interfaces were missing, e.g.: VLNV xilinx.com:display_pcie4: pcie4_cfg_mgmt_rtl:1.0 VLNV...
The problem: In Vivado in the IP Packager, when we want to set a value for any interface parameter, we won't get any TCL commands in the Tcl Console. This is probably a bug. The following images visualize the problem: The solution: I managed to find these missing TCL commands :)...
