Zynq-7000 - 7Z010, 7Z020, 7Z030 and 7Z045 Bitstream compatibility between Production and GES silicon

Description

What is required to ensure bitstream compatibility between GES and Production Silicon for the Zynq-7000 family?

Solution

Production Silicon

Bitstreams targeting 7Z010, 7Z020, 7Z030 and 7Z045 production devices must be generated in ISE 14.5, Vivado 2013.1, or later versions of the design tools.

  • Bitstreams generated in ISE 14.4 or older versions of the tools are not supported on production devices.


GES Silicon

Bitstreams targeting 7Z020 GES devices must be generated in ISE 14.1, 2012.1 or later versions of the design tools.

  • Bitstreams generated in ISE 13.4 or older versions of the tools are not supported on GES devices.

Bitstreams targeting 7Z045 GES devices must be generated in ISE 14.2, 2012.2 or later versions of the design tools.

  • Bitstreams generated in ISE 13.4, 2012.1 or older versions of the tools are not supported on GES devices.

Note: Xilinx Design Suite 14.5, or Vivado 2013.1 or greater must be used to support both GES and Production Silicon devices.
