In 2016, Xilinx added a 2D barcode to the topside marking for all Xilinx 7 Series, Zynq-7000 (28nm) and newer products (20nm, 16nm, 7nm), for commercial / industrial "XC", Automotive "XA", and Defense-grade "XQ" component devices.
The addition of this 2D barcode allows for improved device-level traceability.
How can I get device info based on the 2D Barcode?
How can I retrieve device information using the Device DNA?
Xilinx introduced four key changes to the top marking of certain device families.
Lot combination rules will be updated to take advantage of the new device-level traceability.
