This chapter explains design requirements that are unique to Dynamic Function eXchange (DFX), and covers specific DFX features within the Xilinx® design software tools.
To take advantage of the dynamic reconfiguration capability of Xilinx FPGAs, you must analyze the design specification thoroughly, and consider the requirements, characteristics, and limitations associated with PR designs. This simplifies both the design and debug processes, and avoids potential future risks of malfunction in the design.
This chapter describes the design requirements that apply to all Xilinx devices. For design requirements specific to the individual FPGA and SoC architectures, see the following chapters in this manual:
