This design advisory answer record contains information on bitstream compatibility between General ES (GES) and Production for 7 series devices XC7K325T, XC7K410T, XC7K420T, XC7VX485T, XC7VX690T, and XC7VX1140T.
Bitstreams targeting 7K325T, 7K410T, 7K420T and 7VX485T production devices must be generated in ISE 14.2, Vivado 2012.4, or later versions of the design tools.
Bitstreams targeting 7VX690T production devices must be generated in ISE 14.5, Vivado 2013.1, or later versions of the design tools.
*Please note that not all listed devices are in production yet; see the Kintex-7 and Virtex-7 FPGA data sheets for information on which device/speed combinations are at production status.
Bitstream Compatibility Between GES and Production Devices
7K325T, 7K410T, 7K420T and 7VX485T
To create a single bitstream in ISE 14.2/Vivado 2012.2 or later versions of the Design Suite or later versions that support both Production and GES 7K325T, 7K410T, 7K420T or 7VX485T devices, the following conditions apply:
7VX690T and VX1140T
There is no bitstream compatibility between GES and Production 7VX690T and 7VX1140T devices.
