Licensing - My ZC702 TRD design fails with "ERROR:EDK:1596 - IPNAME:axi_vtc...". How can I generate the AXI_VTC IP evaluation license?

Description

I am attempting to implement and generate a bit file with a ZC702 TRD (target reference design). However, an error similar to the following occurs indicating that I do not have a license for axi_vtc:

Do I need a license for this IP even though it is part of the reference design?

Is there any evaluation license for AXI_VTC we can use?

Solution

Yes, the IP license is required for this reference design. However, an evaluation license will allow the implementation and bit file generation to complete.

you can obtain an evaluation license by following these steps:

  1. Navigate to the product page for this core from: www.xilinx.com/products/ipcenter/EF-DI-VID-TIMING.htm
  2. Click Get License.
  3. In Produce Licensing website, click Search Now in Evaluation and& No Charge Cores windows.
  4. Search "Video Timing Controller", then click Add.
  5. Follow the instructions to install the required Xilinx ISE design tools and IP Service Packs.

 

Note: The above steps were taken from the LogiCORE IP Video Timing Controller Product Guide (PG016).
