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 a date code and lot number included in the top mark at production.
  • The bag and box labels will be changed to include an example representation of a 2D barcode. Use the LPN number to look up device identification if needed before opening the bag.

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.

 

The web-based tool is now available here: https://www.xilinx.com/member/2dbarcode.html

Customers can access Xilinx GO, our new mobile app here: https://www.xilinx.com/about/xilinx-go.html


The 2D barcodes can also be scanned with a regular digital camera. Take a clear shot (try to avoid any blur or glare) of the 2D barcode and upload the image to https://xapps9.xilinx.com/2dbarcode/

 

Use of a manual 2D barcode scanner is also an option. The Recommended model is the CODE CR-1421. The Cognex DM8600 and CODE-1420 are also viable options.


Please contact your local sales representative for more information or you can contact 2dbarcodehelp@xilinx.com for further details.

LPM 2D barcodes will be available starting in January 2017.
