Licensing - For IP core licensing, what is the difference between a Project and a Site license?


What is the difference betweena Project anda Site license?

For example, I am trying to decide between purchasing EF-DI-CORE-IP-PROJ (Project license)or EF-DI-CORE-IP-SITE (Site license)?


Bothlicenses allow for the generation and use of the same feature set.

The Site license limits use of the core to designs developed within a geographical "site".The Core License Agreement standard terms license use of the core to a single site, which it defines to be the area within a 5 mile radius of a specified "site" address).

The Project license only allowsuse of the core in a single project. A "project" is defined to be a single board that is programmed using multiple bitstreams containing the core, or multiple boards that are programmed by a single bitstream containing the core.
