Installing Artix 7 devices definitions on SDSoC Vivado 2016.2

Hi everybody,


I've installed the SDSoC 2016.2 environment, which includes Vivado 2016.2 with support for Zynq and Zynq Ultrascale+ devices. However, I would like to use the same Vivado 2016.2 installation for working on Artix 7 devices, by using it outside the SDSoC flow (just as a plain, stand-alone Vivado installation).


The problem is that, either in the SDSoC setup interface or in the "Add Design Tools or Devices" interface, I am not able to add any device other than the above mentioned Zynq and Zynq Ultrascale+ series. Nevertheless, I noticed that I am able to do that if I download and install a stand-alone Vivado 2016.2 version).


Is there any way to include the Artix 7 series within the SDSoC Vivado installation? Or I need to install a second plain Vivado version to be used outside the SDSoC flow, even if I already have the same Vivado version within the SDSoC setup?


Thank you.

Hi Paolo,


Currently SDSoC installs Vivado underneath and is restricted to Zynq and Zynq MPSoC devices. You'll have to install a 2nd Vivado in order to use any other devices.
