I have combed through the forums but still have not found the answer I am looking for. I have the Arty board and Vivado 2015.4. I can create a project and I can select the Arty board in that process. I create a Block diagram on which to start building my 'circuit'. At this point I try two different ways to get a pmod port on the board: I click on the 'Board' tab and I find all the input and output ports (led, led_rgb, buttons, switches, spi, etc and Connector JA thu JD). I try and bring a JA onto the block diagram and get a message "Conn JA board component cannot be connected because no possible options to connect". Second thing I try is to click on 'Add IP' and select AXI_GPIO. Double click that and have the option to re-customize this block. Under 'Board Interface' is a drop down menu with , again, all the input/output items on the Arty board, but no pmod ports. I have tried this with and without bringing in the latest constraints file (from Github) with the same negative results. What does it take to get the pmod ports (Connectors JA-JD) on the block diagram? Switches and buttons and leds do move to the Block Diagram and they create an AXI block when they do.
So what am I missing?
Thank you for your time and help.
