Partial Reconfiguration is now an included feature of Vivado that allows blocks of logic within the FPGA to be modified dynamically while the rest of the logic continues to work as before. All versions of Vivado from 2017.1 onwards include Partial Reconfiguration within the project flow as well, i.e. via the IDE rather than as a script only option. Partial reconfiguration is currently supported by all 7 series and Zynq devices and most of the UltraScale family. Partial Reconfiguration on the UltraScale family is more powerful still offering full reconfiguration of fixed blocks like Gigabit Transceivers. Zedboard The ZedBoard is a low-cost development board for the Xilinx Zynq-7000. The board is based on the XC7Z020-CLG484 which combines FPGA fabric with a dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor The Zedboard comes with a 4 GB SD card, and boots Linux out of the box.
Resources on the board include: 512 MB DDR3 memory; 256 Mb Quad SPI Flash; 4 GB SD Card Included; 10/100/1000 Ethernet; USB OTG (Device/Host/OTG); USB UART; HDMI, VGA out; 128 x 32 OLED; 9 LEDs; 8 Dipswitches; 7 Push buttons. For more information on the Zedboard, including documentation, design examples and user forum, please see: A Zedboard user guide is . Nexsys Video The Nexys Video is a an Artix based board optimised for video projects featuring an HMDI sink and source as well as a Mini DisplayPort source. There’s also 512MB of DDR3 RAM on board and the usual USB and Ethernet connections.
The chip is an XC7A200T-1SBG484C with 33k logic slices, 13Mbits of fast block RAM, 740 DSP slices and four 3.75Gbps transceivers. Please see this for more information. Genesys 2 For large and/or high speed designs, the Genesys 2 offers a large fast Kintex-7 device on a board with 1GB of DDR3 RAM and an FMC connector that brings out 10 of the FPGA’s 10.3Gbps GTX transceivers. The device has 50k logic slices, almost 16Mbit of on chip block RAM and 840 DSP slices. Note that this is the -2 commercial speed grade part, i.e. the faster fabric. Full details can be

The concept goes beyond the traditional FPGA heartland of programmable logic and I/O into areas such as software-programmable ARM subsystems, 3D ICs and analog mixed signal. To achieve this, Vivado directly addresses nagging integration and implementation design-productivity bottlenecks.
SystemCrafter SC is a SystemC synthesis tool for Xilinx FPGAs.
SDSoc is an optional add-on bundle to Vivado. SDSoC is a development environment that lets you take a program running on the Zynq and accelerate functions within that program by transferring them to the FPGA fabric. A set of performance and area estimation tools are included so that you can explore then benefits of turning the function into hardware and then an automatic generator that moves the function to hardware and generates all necessary interfaces between it and the program running on the Zynq. The software system can either be bare metal, Linux or FreeRTOS.
