2015.4 Vivado HW Manager: Kintex UltraScale KU085 BPI/SPI flash programming core files are incorrect.


In Vivado 2015.4 there is an issue when attempting flash programming through an XCKU085 FPGA.

The error message reported is "End Of Startup Status LOW" during the programming operation.

The attached ZIP file contain xcku085 flash cores that address this issue.


The attached ZIP file only contains the updated XCKU085 BPI/SPI cores. For indirect flash programming using other FPGAs, replace this ZIP file with the original bitfile.zip (which was renamed in step 1 below) from your Xilinx installation.

To use the flash core files:

  1. Rename the existing ./data/xicom/cfgmem/bitfile.zip file in your current Vivado installation.
  2. Rename the attached xcku085_cores.zip as bitfile.zip and put the ZIP file into the ./data/xicom/cfgmem directory.

This issue will be fixed in the Vivado 2016.1 release.
