UltraRAM is described in "Chapter 2, UltraRAM Resources" of the UltraScale Architecture Memory Resources User Guide (UG573) as follows:

UltraRAM is a single-clocked, two port, synchronous memory available in AMD UltraScale+™ devices. Because UltraRAM is compatible with the columnar architecture, multiple UltraRAMs can be instantiated and directly cascaded in an UltraRAM column for the entire height of the device. A column in a single clock region contains 16 UltraRAM blocks. Devices with UltraRAM include multiple UltraRAM columns distributed in the device. Most of the devices in the UltraScale+ family include UltraRAM blocks. For the available quantity of UltraRAM in specific device families, see the UltraScale Architecture and Product Data Sheet: Overview (DS890).

The following files are included in the Coding Examples:

  • xilinx_ultraram_single_port_no_change.v
  • xilinx_ultraram_single_port_no_change.vhd
  • xilinx_ultraram_single_port_read_first.v
  • xilinx_ultraram_single_port_read_first.vhd
  • xilinx_ultraram_single_port_write_first.v
  • xilinx_ultraram_single_port_write_first.vhd

The Vivado tool includes templates of UltraRAM VHDL and Verilog code. The following figure shows the template files.
