For the 7 series/Zynq-7000 SoC and above device XPE spreadsheets, you can enter block memory information in the Block RAM sheet by using the Memory Generator wizard. The Memory Generator wizard provides a simplified method of populating the Block RAM sheet with rows related to block memory, displayed as BRAMs on the Block RAM sheet. The Memory Generator wizard can be started from the Block RAM sheet by clicking the Add Memory button.

For a description of the Memory Generator wizard and how you can run the wizard from the Block RAM sheet, see Using the Memory Generator Wizard (for Block Memory).
Important: The memory type that is selected in the Vivado IDE might not propagate to the Block RAMs implemented. For 7 series devices that make use of the port aspect ratios, RAM_MODE is set to Single Dual-port RAM (SDP). For more details about these configurations, see the 7 Series FPGAs Memory Resources User Guide (UG473). All other configurations for the RAM_MODE are not guaranteed to be SDP.
Note: Asymmetric port width is not supported for 7 series XPE while using VBRAM in SDP mode.
