2017.3 Vivado - When I open my project in Vivado 2017.3 I get Critical Warning [Board 49-67] The board_part definition was not found ...

Description

When I open my project in Vivado 2017.3 I get a critical warning similar to the following:

Critical Warning [Board 49-67] The board_part definition was not found for xilinx.com:vcu118:part0:1.1.  This can happen sometimes when you use custom board part. 
You can resolve this issue by setting 'board.repoPaths' parameter,  pointing to the location of custom board files.  Valid board_part values can be retrieved with the 'get_board_parts' Tcl command.

I am not using a custom board part. My project uses a Xilinx board part that worked correctly in Vivado 2017.2.

Additionally, once I open the old project in Vivado 2017.3, because the board part cannot be found, Vivado selects a part instead of a board and loses board awareness.

Solution

In Vivado 2017.3, Xilinx added ES# to the board part for VCU118-ES1 and ZCU102-ES2 board files.

This allows stand-alone tools to differentiate between ES silicon boards and production silicon boards.

However, when opening a project from Vivado 2017.2 which uses one of these board parts, the above Critical Warning will be issued.

To resolve this, all VCU118-ES1 and ZCU102-ES2 and earlier designs should be re-targeted to new parts available in 2017.3.

The new parts are:

  • xilinx.com:vcu118_es1:part0:1.2
  • xilinx.com:zcu102_es2:part0:2.3
