Even though UltraScale and UltraScale+ devices Pblocks are not required to be frame aligned (that is, the height of the clock region), Dynamic Function eXchange still programs the entire configuration frame. This means that logic outside of the RP is overwritten. This does not cause any issues in DFX, but in previous architectures there were some limitations about what kind of static logic could be in the same frame as reconfigurable logic.

For UltraScale and UltraScale+ devices, any static logic can be placed in the same configuration frame as the RM, in any sites not owned by the RP Pblock. This includes block RAM, DSP, and LUT RAM. There is still a restriction however, that there can be only one RP per configuration frame. That means you cannot vertically stack two RPs in the same clock region.
