Device Vulnerability Factor and Essential Bits

AR# 59879 "How do I generate the report that provides my design's Device Vulnerability Factor?", from 2014, stated that at the time Vivado was unable to report the DVF. Has the command been added to more recent Vivado releases? (I'm using 2016.4 on my current project... still old.) I'm not sure the AR's alternate approach of importing my design into PlanAhead will work (I don't think PlanAhead imports Vivado projects).


Second question is, what is the difference between the DVF and the percentage of Essential Bits (as reported by bitgen)? Which would I use to calculate my SEU rate? (I believe it should be DVF.)
