The internal supply voltage for the video codec unit (VCU) is set via Resistors R38 and R39. For the above mentioned affected SoMs R38 is set to 40.2 kOhm resulting in a PL_VCU voltage of 1.0V. This is above the recommended operation specification.
Up to the issue date of this design note no adverse effects have been reported. For all serial numbers not mentioned under affected products R38 is 20 kOhm resulting in xilinx recommended 0.9V internal VCU voltage.
