Do you mean that you want port B of a BRAM possible to connect to as
independent ports and not a bus interface? In that case make a copy of
the file bram_block_v2_1_0.mpd in the $EDK/hw/XilinxProcessorIPLib/
pcores/bram_block_v1_00_a/data folder and rename it for example
bram_block_modified.mpd. Remove the BUS = PORTB and the default
connections of the signals, i.e. instead of BRAM_Dout_B = BRAM_Dout
insert BRAM_Dout_B = "". Add the mpd file to the user repository of
EDK and then you might have to restart XPS. Add the modified file to
your project and now port B of the bram will be visible in the port
connections. I have done this in later versions of EDK, hopefully it
will work in 6.2 as well.
