Does Xillybus support the Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU1500?

I have the Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU1500 Acceleration Development Kit. There is no demo bundle for it on the site. Does Xillybus support the board?

Xillybus supports all Kintex Ultrascale FPGAs (and others as well, of course). To make the it work on your board, please download the demo bundle for KCU105 at the website, unzip the bundle and modify it as follows:

In vivado-essentials/main.tcl, change the line 4 to reflect the FPGA part in use. For example, for board with the early evaluation sample FPGA, it will say

Code: Select all
set thepart "xcku115-flvb2104-2-e"

Also replace vivado-essentials/xillydemo.xdc with the following:
Code: Select all
create_clock -name sys_clk -period 10 [get_ports PCIE_REFCLK_P]

set_clock_groups -name async1 -asynchronous \
  -group [get_clocks -include_generated_clocks -of_objects [get_ports PCIE_REFCLK_P]] \
  -group [get_clocks -include_generated_clocks -of_objects [get_pins [all_fanin -flat -startpoints_only [get_pins -hier -filter {name=~*/gt_top_i/phy_clk_i/CLK_USERCLK_IN}]]]]

set_false_path -from [get_ports PCIE_PERST_B_LS]

set_property LOC [get_package_pins -filter {PIN_FUNC == IO_T3U_N12_PERSTN0_65}] [get_ports PCIE_PERST_B_LS]

set_property LOC AT11 [get_ports PCIE_REFCLK_P]

set_property -dict "IOSTANDARD LVCMOS18 PULLUP true" [get_ports PCIE_PERST_B_LS]

set_property -dict "PACKAGE_PIN AW25 IOSTANDARD LVCMOS18" [get_ports "GPIO_LED[0]"]
set_property -dict "PACKAGE_PIN AY25 IOSTANDARD LVCMOS18" [get_ports "GPIO_LED[1]"]
set_property -dict "PACKAGE_PIN BA27 IOSTANDARD LVCMOS18" [get_ports "GPIO_LED[2]"]
set_property -dict "PACKAGE_PIN BA28 IOSTANDARD LVCMOS18" [get_ports "GPIO_LED[3]"]

and then build the demo bundle as usual (that is, follow "Getting started with the FPGA demo bundle for Xilinx").
