Vivado 2017.4 does not find zynq ultrascale es1 devices

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I'm trying to use a zynq ultrascale es1 device (xczu9eg-ffvc900-1-i-es1) but for some reason vivado does not find it.

I've been using it with vivado 2017.3 without any problem, but zynqmp es1 devices do not appear in 2017.4 version.

 

I'm using the same licenses in the same machine in both cases. es1 licenses for this device are 2017.10 so as long as I know, there should not be any license problem.

 

I've also set up the init file in ~/.Xilinx/Vivado/2017.4/Vivado_init.tcl to enable beta devices

enable_beta_device xczu9eg*

When I start vivado, it does not enable any device.

16 Beta devices matching pattern found, 0 enabled.

Any idea why I cannot use es1 devices?

 

Thank you

Hi @afilgueras,

 

I see your issue now. The Vivado 2017.4 version requires a license version limit of 2017.12 to be compatible. Below is our version limit chart.

Hi @afilgueras,

 

Have you verified that the device MPSoC ES devices box was checked during the installer? You can verify this by going into the Vivado GUI and selecting help > add design tools or devices.

 

Thank you,

Devin

As long as I can tell, ES devices are installed.

In fact zynqmp ES2 devices do show up.

 

Here are my currently installed components, just in case there's something missing that I did not notice.

Than you

Hello @afilgueras,

 

As correctly indicated by @devinl, your current ES license is not valid for 2017.4 version of Vivado.

In this case, you should be able to log in to www.xilinx.com/getlicenses and in here, you should now be able to select and generate the same license file (but with a newer/updated version limit) and this should fix your issue.

 

If you have any further questions for us, please let us know.

Kind Regards,
Anatoli Curran,

I am having this same issue.  My license version is > 2017.12, and I see all the ES2 devices when I go to "Select Device".  There are no ES1 devices listed.  Please advise.
