Please refer to the errata which accompanies the device for additional information.

Software Known Issues

General Software Known Issue

  • (Xilinx Answer 47816) 7 Series - ISE 14.x/Vivado 2012.x Design Suite Known Issues Related to 7 Series FPGA

IP Requirements

All 7 series IP cores are listed as Pre-Production in the CORE Generator "Status" field. Support of Pre-Production cores on GES FPGA devices is dependent on Xilinx hardware validation, which is ongoing throughout the ES period. IP that has been hardware validated is still subject to change as verification and characterization work continues. Consult the IP Known Issues Answer Records below for the most recent information.
