Most of the TE modules are available in different assembly options. Assembly option with different FPGA/SOC devices or other DDR sizes need an own board part file. In some cases also a PCB revision changes or a special carrier module combination needs a separate board part.
It's recommended to use the board part files only for this Vivado Version, for which it has been provided. Depending on the Schema Version of the XML-Files, it is possible to use them with other Vivado versions, see Xilinx ug895.
Naming Conventions and Version
This Naming Convention will be used for the most Vivado 2016.2 Board Part Files and newer one.
Board part consists on a base folder, a version sub folder with three xml files and on picture:
- Every assembly option of a module/carrier series where FPGA-Typ (Size, Speed Grade, Temp grade) is changed, gets a new base folder.
- Every other assembly option or PCB-revision change, which has affects on the reference design settings, gets a new version sub folder.
Board Part Base Folder
Board Part Names of the base folder consists of max. three parts separated by underline character.
|Name of the module series||fpga size||assembly option|
|Usage of the part of name||always||optional||optional|
Board Part Version Folder
Version folder Name consists on a major and minor number separated by a dot (<major>.<minor>, example 1.0) Different Version folder means:
Attention: Changes on the Board Part Files by itself are not under version control at the moment, like described in Xilinx ug895. XML file includes a comment header with the date of the last changes of this file.
Board Part Files will be delivered with our Reference Designs on our https://shop.trenz-electronic.de/en/Download/?path=Trenz_Electronic/<module_name>/Reference_Design/<vivado_version>/<design_name>.
Board Part Files are locate in the subfolder <design_name>/board_files/ of the downloadable Reference Design. For more of the zip-file folder structure see: Project Delivery - Directory Structure.
This folder includes also a *_board_files.csv file with a list of all available board parts. This list is only used by TE-Scripts.
