UltraZed Engineering Silicon

Hello,
Can you give any timelines of when UltraZed will feature production silicon?
Best regards

The production silicon will

The production silicon will be available late March 2017. We typically need 20 working days to build boards, so if the production devices are released on schedule, we will have UltraZed-EG SOMs with production devices available late April.

Update?

Has there been any update on this?  Was production silicon released in March?  Any new projections on release of UltaZed kits?
 
On related note, has anyone heard when Vivado 2017.1 will be released?
 
Thanks

Hello Dyessgg,

Hello Dyessgg,

Xilinx will be beginning the shipment of the production silicon next week, but Avnet may or may not be their first customer to get the production parts. Upon recieving these production parts, the SOMS will be ready 20 working days after that. I will post back on this topic if I find more information out.

As for Vivado 2017.1, from my understanding it is scheduled to be released sometime this month for public access. I do not know of a hard date, however I am under the assumption it will be near the end of the month. I will post back if I find any more information out in regards to this topic.

If I got an board with ES1

If I got an board with ES1 now, do you know if there will be Vivado versions in the future which do not support the engineering samples anymore and will only work with production silicon?
I remember this wasn't the case with the old Zynq 7000, but you also didn't need to get a stupid license from Xilinx to be able to build for ES at all. If I can't use my board (which I just got a week ago) with newer versions of Vivado, that would be a big let-down.

Hi Andy,

Hi Andy,

I highly doubt that Xilinx would make the ES1 devices obsolete with their future Vivado releases. This would alienate their existing customers. However, just to double check I am going to suggest that you make a post over at the Xilinx forum to get a validated answer to your question.

ES-2

Hi, are there only ES-1 and (currently?) production silicon versions delivered or ES-2 version as well?
I try to order any of this versions from Europe/Germany but lead time is several months, even for ES-1.
I wonder if I have to order ES-1 or production version now (e.g. if ES-1 will be still produced wven when production silicon is available)?
What would be the fasted way to get a kit?
Thanks, Ric.

Hi Ric,

Hi Ric,

Sorry for the wait.

We are currently out of stock of the UltraZed ES1 Starter kits. At this time we do not have any plans to build any more UltraZed kits with the ES1 parts. What I mean by this is, our next build will be done using the Production Silicon. These Production Silicon UltraZed kits will be available sometime mid July.

The fastest way you could get an UltraZed kit as of now is to order the Production Silicon kit with an estimated arrival of mid July. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Here are the part # for you to order from

UltraZed Production Silicon Starter Kit - AES-ZU3EG-1-SK-G 

UltraZed Production Silicon SOM - AES-ZU3EG-1-SOM-I-G

Looks like August

Quickly checking AvnetExpress.com for the UltraZED Starter Kit shows they expect delivery (to Avnet?) by 8/9/2017.  Not sure exactly what that means for ordering/receiving one though.
I tried to paste the link but couldn't for some reason.

Hello Everyone,

Hello Everyone,

At the end of next week we should have the UltraZed SOMs in stock and available to ship out.

However if you are looking for the UltraZed Starter kit which includes the IO Carrier Card, it should be available by 8/9/2017 to ship out to customers. The reason for the delay from just the SOM to the Starter Kit is due to us recieving the Producation Carrier Cards a week after the SOMs and kitting time requirements.

Hope this helps!
