replace BPI parallel NOR flash memory device for VC707 board

I have an old VC707(virtex7 device) board.The BPI parallel NOR flash memory (Micron: PC28F00AG18FE/MT28GU01GAAA1EGC)on it is  suspected damaged.I want to find one to replace it.

But after I  lookup the online eletronic component distributor.I found none of them sell it,all the  websites display 'EOL' of it.

I want to know :

1、where I can buy it?

2、If I can't bug it,which alternative device I can use without change original factory code for  VC707. 

 

Thanks!

Re: replace BPI parallel NOR flash memory device for VC707 board

Hi jason1937,

 

It is not recommended to make changes in Xilinx evaluation board platform.

May I know how you are concluding that flash on your board is damaged?

 

If you intend to design custom board for Virtex 7 FPGA  and looking for compatible BPI Flash then you can check for ug908-vivado-programming-debugging.pdf (Appendix C) for Xilinx supported flash and also check forum link  https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Configuration/Replacement-Parallel-NOR-flash-for-7-series/td-p/823360

 

Regards,

Bhushan

Re: replace BPI parallel NOR flash memory device for VC707 board

Hi,Bhushan

 
I' m appreciate hearing from you reply.After browsering the  UG908,I found many chips's package is not compatible with MT28GU01GAAA1EGC.
 
My conclusion about the flash's death is from Vivado.Once upon a time,When I use Vivado to burn the factory binary software.It's failed.But now I have  forgotten the error message. 
 
I 'd like to hear about your method to judge the flash chip is good or bad.
