Can I read Xilinx Datasheets and User Guides on a mobile device / tablet?


I understand that Doc Nav is supported only in Windows.

Can I read Xilinx Datasheets and User Guides on a mobile device / tablet?


Yes, Xilinx Technical Documentation (PDF and HTML) is fully readable and functional on mobile devices/tablet.
Xilinx recommend the following
  1. Use a tablet with a minimum screen size of 9 inches.
    This recommendation is due to screen real estate and the usability of a PDF reader as the screen size shrinks, and readability as the text size shrinks. 
    Reading the documentation on a 9 inch screen provides full functionality at default settings.
  2. Use Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader provides the full complement of features on the iOS, Android and Windows devices. 
    These features include navigation (table of contents, search, scrolling), markup (notes, text highlight), zoom in/out, links, and more.

Known Issues on iOS and Android devices
Named Destination links (a link from a specific location in one document to a specific location in a different document) do not work as expected. 
The link will download the correct document and open at the first page. 
You will need to navigate to the specific location or search to find the location.
