SecureIP - What is SecureIP and how do I use it?


What is SecureIP and how do I use it?


Xilinx leverages the latest encryption methodology as specified in Verilog LRM - IEEE Std 1364-2005. 

Simulation models for the Hard-IP such as the PowerPC processor, MGT, and PCIe leverage this technology.

For more information, see the Synthesis and Simulation guide at:


There are special requirements for licensing which are also listed in the Synthesis and Simulation Guide.

Starting in 11.1, SecureIP flow is supported by all Xilinx simulation vendor partners.
