Vivado UltraScale Partial Reconfiguration - SNAPPING_MODE property is not displayed in a Reconfigurable Module (RM) pblock's Properties Window


In Vivado versions prior to 2015.3, I can see the SNAPPING_MODE property in a Reconfigurable Module (RM) pblock's Properties Window.

In Vivado 2015.3, I cannot see SNAPPING_MODE property in a RM pblock's Property Window for a design targeting an UltraScale device.

Is this expected behavior?


This is expected behavior for an UltraScale design.

You can still access the SNAPPING_MODE property with the set_property and get_property commands.

For example:

set_property SNAPPING_MODE ON/OFF [get_pblocks <pblock name>]

Note: SNAPPING_MODE ROUTING is only supported for 7 series devices.

For unsupported devices, the following error will be reported:

ERROR: [Common 17-110] Invalid property value: ROUTING
