  • On the Software Platform page, choose the Xilinx Platforms (FPGAs, SoCs, Versal ACAPs) that you want to download. You can select only the devices that you own or plan to use. For example, if you have a Nexys Video board with an Artix 7 FPGA, you can select only SoCs under Devices.

  • On the Destination Directory page, choose a folder where you want to install Vivado. Make sure you have enough disk space (at least 100 GB) for the installation.
