What is the status of the power characterization for UltraScale+ silicon in Vivado 2016.3?
UltraScale+ power characterization accuracy has been improved to the status of Preliminary in the 2016.3 release based on first-pass silicon characterization results.
However the incorrect labeling of Advance was inadvertently released in the 2016.3 versions of Vivado and XPE. Advance is the characterization accuracy status of the previous release, 2016.2.
XPE 2016.3 was corrected and re-released as version 2016.3.1, with a date of 19-Oct-2016 and the correct characterization accuracy level of Preliminary.
Vivado 2016.3 power reports show Advance characterization accuracy which is incorrect. The correct level is Preliminary, however the Vivado power reports will not be corrected to show the Advance status until the 2016.4 release.
