Some device resources are compatible with the Versal™ architecture, making it possible to import XPE data from prior architectures. Versal ACAP XPE will apply the data to match Versal architecture as closely as possible. In the Versal ACAP XPE, use the Load/Import .xpe button under Create Design Wizard from the Summary sheet to import the data from the previously generated .xpe file.
Note: Only data from UltraScale+™ families are supported for import.

After importing, review each page for incompatibility.

On the Summary sheet, review Device Settings and choose the target Versal device. For Versal ACAP XPE, Speed Grade and Temperature Grade have been combined into a single selection called Device Grade.

Next review Environment Settings. For Versal devices, Environment settings have been simplified to provide only Junction Temperature override, Ambient Temp, and Effective ΘJA. Either Junction Temperature must be overridden, or Effective ΘJA overridden with Ambient Temp specified.
