Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC - UltraScale+ PCI Express Integrated Block (Vivado 2018.3) - Tandem Prom Support

Description

Version Found: UltraScale+ PCI Express Integrated Block v1.3 (Rev. 4) - (Vivado 2018.3)

Version Resolved and other Known Issues: (Xilinx Answer 65751)

(PG213) states that Tandem is not supported with RFSoC devices in Table 3-1 as seen below:

"Zynq RFSoC devices do not have MCAP-enabled PCIe block locations.

These devices are not supported for Tandem Configuration.

If support is enabled in a future release, it would be for the Tandem PROM solution only."

In Vivado 2018.3, Tandem PROM can be enabled using the UltraScale+ PCI Express Integrated Block when the core is in Advanced Mode as seen below:


 

Is Tandem PROM supported in RFSoC Devices in Vivado 2018.3?

Solution

Support for Tandem PROM was added in Vivado 2018.3 for the UltraScale+ PCI Express Integrated Block. 

(PG213) Table 3-1 was not updated to include this support.

The Product Guide will be updated to reflect the correct support in the next release of the documentation.

It will read as follows:

Part
PCIe Block Location
Tandem ConfigurationTandem PCIe with Field Updates
ZU21DRPCIE40E4_X0Y0Tandem PROM Only
Not Supported
Zynq RFSoC(2)ZU25DRPCIE40E4_X0Y0Tandem PROM OnlyNot Supported
ZU27DRPCIE40E4_X0Y0Tandem PROM OnlyNot Supported
ZU28DRPCIE40E4_X0Y0Tandem PROM OnlyNot Supported
ZU29DRPCIE40E4_X0Y0Tandem PROM OnlyNot Supported

  1. Only production silicon is officially supported. Bitstream generation is disabled for all engineering sample silicon (ES1,ES2) devices.
  2. Zynq RFSoC devices do not have MCAP-enabled PCIe block locations. These devices are therefore supported for Tandem PROM only.

Note: Tandem PROM is not currently supported in RFSoC devices in the UltraScale+ DMA/Bridge IP (both Bridge and DMA mode)
