Packaging - 7 Series, UltraScale and UltraScale+ Products - 2D Barcode Topside Marking

Description

Xilinx will be adding a 2D barcode to the topside marking for all Xilinx 7 Series, Zynq-7000, Zynq UltraScale+, UltraScale, and UltraScale+ commercial / industrial "XC", Automotive "XA", and Defense-grade "XQ" devices.

The addition of this 2D barcode allows for improved device-level traceability.

This will be a phased introduction. This answer record contains more information about this transition?

Solution

Xilinx is making four key changes to the top marking of certain device families.

  • A 2D barcode will be added to all Xilinx 7 Series, Zynq-7000, Zynq UltraScale+, UltraScale, and UltraScale+ commercial / industrial "XC", Automotive "XA", and Defense-grade "XQ" devices.
  • Line 4 marking will be removed for all Xilinx 7 Series, Zynq-7000, Zynq UltraScale+, UltraScale, and UltraScale+ commercial / industrial "XC" and Automotive "XA" devices.
  • UltraScale+ products will no longer have date code and lot number included in the top mark at production.
  • The bag and box labels will be changed to add a representation of the device marking.

Lot combination rules will be updated to take advantage of the new device level traceability.

Xilinx will provide a web based and mobile application for in-field verification. Beta applications can be accessed using this link.
