Licensing - What are the features and limitations of a purchased license?


What are the features and limitations of a purchased license?


A purchased license allows you to target all Xilinx CPLD and FPGA devices, and run all Xilinx applications, which you have purchased (including bitstream generation).

A purchased license does not expire.

However, some purchased licenses do contain a version limit (typically one year after the purchase date). 

In this case, you are required to obtain a new license when updating to a newer version of the software released after the version limit month.
