Displayport Subsystem IP not supported on Artix-7? Why not?

Jump to solution

I am designing a product which requires Displayport Tx and currently developing on Digilent's Nexys Video board, but none of the Xilinx Displayport Subsystem IP seems to be supported on Artix-7.

 

The Nexys Video board (with XC7A200T-1SBG484C) has the required GTP which should meet DP spec. even for DP1.3, and it is in fact routed to a mini-Displayport connector on the board.

 

Is there any possible way to implement this IP in my design?

Hi @tommymc,

 

The DisplayPort SubSystem does not support Artix-7 devices. Due to clocking, fabric, and density, I do not recommend using Artix devices for DP/HDMI cores.

 

If you choose to move forward with an Artix device, you may be able to add a DP Tx interface to your design. The DisplayPort 7.0 core (not SubSystem) was available Vivado 2017.2 and earlier. I believe that this core can target Artix devices. I do not recommend using discontinued IP

 

Without knowing your project requirements, my suggestion is to move to a Kintex device and use the DisplayPort SubSystem and the latest release of the Vivado tools.

 

Regards,

Sam
