Virtex Ultrascale+ HBM not selectable in Vivado

Jump to solution

I'm using Vivado 2017.3

 

I've installed the Virtex US+ HBM devices. I can see them in the Vivado install directory.

I also included the init.tcl script to enable Early Access devices.

According the last Monthly no EA license is needed.

 

Any suggestion to select the HBM parts?

Hello @kvanegmond,

I've confirmed and indeed, the monthly statement is incorrect. The IP can be targeted without any special patch although the device still needs a special license. 

We've requested this monthly statement (on page 78) to be updated.

Hi @kvanegmond

 

1. Provide the full device part number.

2. Can you provide the snapshot of the vivado license manager where the license for vivado U+ HBM device shown installed successfully on your vivado? ( Because as per my knowledge you will require specific device license for it.)

 

2. If it is not shown in VLM, you need to get it from the Xilinx HBM lounge.

Hi,

 

For sure I've no special license for the HBM part.

In the Montthly it is stated that it is no longere needed, see page 78 of the Nov edition.

Hello @kvanegmond,

 

Please note that based on the Monthly Updates, page 116 table, you can see that these devices are definitely require a special license, as these are ES Licensed devices. 

However, you are correct, this note on the page 78 is confusing, as it indicates that these devices don't need an ES license. Therefore, leave this with me and i will double check with the marketing guys on this matter. I will let you know once i hear back from them. Thanks
