Ultrascale+ VCU118-ES board files for Vivado 2019

Vivado 2019 seems to have removed the board files (< 2.0) for the engineering sample version of the VCU118.

I tried to copy the board files from a previous version of Vivado over to the 2019 board files directory, but can't seem to force 2019 to update its board list to include the copied ES board files.

How should I resolve this?

Hi bfung,

Do you have ES Silicon on your VCU118-ES?: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/37579.html

If so, the issue might be 2019.1 not supporting XCVU9P ES.

Please confirm the device is supported by running:

get_parts -filter {NAME =~"*es"}

Thanks,
Andres

Yes, I have ES silicon.

What if I were to create a custom board file. How does Vivado detect if a file is ES or not?

Hi bfung,

I missed your response! 

If you create your own board files, you'll still have to define your part in board.xml and part0_pins.xml.

If you want to use VCU118-ES with Vivado 2019.1, you need to enable ES devices. Do you have them installed?

Thanks,
Andres

Yes, ES was enabled during installation, but I can't seem to force Vivado 2019.1 to include the VCU118-ES board files. I copied these board files over to the Vivado 2019.1 directory from Vivado 2017.4.

Hi bfung,

Can you run this tcl command on Vivado to see which ES devices you have enabled?

get_parts -filter {NAME =~"*es"}

Thanks,
Andres

Hi all,

I encounter the same problem. It seems Vivado 2018.x~2019.2 dose not support this FPGA part number. (The last valid version is Vivado 2017.4) 

From the previous reply, it does not show any result after I input the command "get_parts -filter {NAME =~"*es"}" on TCL tab of Vivado 2019.1. And there is no option to install the device on Vivado 2019.1 installation. ("Engineering SampleDevices" >> "Virtex UltraScale + ES")

Are there soultion/workaround to this problem?

I am looking forward for your reply.

Thanks.

HI wraoglter,

Have you installed the ES parts?

Take a look at this:

Hi all, I have not been able to force Vivado 2019 to include the vu9p-ES board files.
This might be an unfruitful endeavor since VCU118-ES has not been supported since 2017.4 according to the release notes.
