Licensing - Can I distribute the netlist of a licensed LogiCORE IP Core to a third party for implementation?

Description

Can I distribute the netlist of a licensed LogiCORE IP Core to a third party for implementation?

Solution

A full Xilinx LogiCORE IP Core license entitles you to generate the LogiCORE IP Core netlist and implement it in a design. In order for a third party to implement a design containing a LogiCORE IP Core netlist, they must also have a license for the LogiCORE IP Core.

Attempting to create a bitstream for a design containing an licensed IP core should result in an error similar to the following, if a valid license for that IP is not found.

ERROR:Security:142 - No IP Core license of type 'Design_Linking' or greater available for '<licensed_core>' version '2.0'.
