Xilinx Productivity Advantage

It’s All About Improving Productivity


The Xilinx Productivity Advantage (XPA) program optimizes customers’ engineering resource potential through the use of Xilinx’s Software, IP, Hardware and Training by bundling Vivado, Training Credits, IP and Hardware at a discount.

Benefits of XPA

The use of XPA program, customer can raise productivity through:

  • Integration of Xilinx Design Productivity Solutions into customer’s design flow
  • Use of Xilinx IP saves design & verification time
  • Continuous access to the latest software & tools
  • Access to Xilinx Education courses for improved engineer efficiency

Components of XPA

The XPA bundle criteria is made up of a seat of Vivado + 2 days’ worth of Training Credits.  Once the XPA bundle criteria is satisfied, a customer is entitled to a discount.  Customers can also choose to add IPs and Hardware to the XPA bundle.


Vivado® Design Suite delivers a SoC-strength, IP-centric and system-centric, next generation development environment that has been built from the ground up to address the productivity bottlenecks in system-level integration and implementation.

Node Locked License – A node-locked license is an encrypted "key" that is locked to a specific machine or dongle (certificate licenses only).
