Virtex UltraScale+ HBM Controller - AXI_RRESP Can Be Incorrect in Some Conditions


Version Found: HBM v1.0

Version Resolved: See (Xilinx Answer 69267)

With ES HMB devices, the AXI read data slave response (RRESP) can be erroneous in either of the following conditions:

  • I enable ECC correction and enable ECC scrubbing
  • I enable ECC correction and a partial word write (read-modify-write) operation

In these combinations, the RRESP might not display an error when there is an uncorrectable ECC error detected, or it might display an error when there is none.  

See the figure below.


To work around this issue, do not use either ECC scrubbing or Partial Word Writes in combination with ECC Correction when using HBM ES devices.

These issues are fixed in production HBM devices.
