2014.2 Vivado System Generator - Cannot generate a design on some Kintex or Virtex UltraScale devices from the System Generator token


A number of Kintex UltraScale and Virtex UltraScale devices fail generation when targeted from System Generator for DSP.

The below is an example error message:

Part on the System Generator Token in your design is set to kintexu xcku035-1ffva1156. This part is not found in your Vivado installation.
Please modify the System Generator Token to a part that is currently installed or update Vivado by installing this part.

Is this a known issue and is there any work-around available?


This is a known issue in System Generator 2014.2 and is fixed in the 2014.3 release.

Please update to Vivado Design Suite 2014.3.
