Xilinx Licensing and Support Agreements

The Industry's Best

When you purchase your Xilinx ISE® Design Suite as your logic design solution, you automatically participate in the industry's most comprehensive Software Services program.

The Complete Solution Includes the Following:

  • A 12 month license, referred to as a Time Based License (TBL), allows you to use the software to create new designs
  • Access to our acclaimed Support web site, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • Through Xilinx Support you will have access to:
    • Answers Database - with over 4,000 problem solutions
    • Forums - Participate in discussion groups or browse our chat rooms
    • Problem Solvers - Troubleshoot your design issues with this interactive tool
    • Software Updates - Keep your software running at peak performance
    • Alerts - Receive timely information via e-mail on topics of interest to you

A Time-Based License (TBL) grants a designer a license to use the Xilinx software for a period of one year. While the annual license is in effect, the user is able to use all major and quarterly software releases. At the end of the annual license, the license can be extended by purchasing an additional one year license. Otherwise, the license to use the software ends.

The Time-Based License does provide for "archival use" of the software. That is, any designer who needs to modify a design or fix a bug after the one year license has ended is permitted to do so.
