9.2i EDK - Do I have to generate license files for the UART 16550 and Ethernetlite cores?

Description

The Web pages for the UART 16550/16540 and Ethernetlite indicate that these cores are included free of charge in EDK 9.2i. However, I receive the following messages during platgen.

INFO:coreutil - License for component <xps_uart16550_v1> found, but the generated design will cease to function in the programmed device after operating for some period of time. This allows you to evaluate the component in hardware. You are encouraged to license this component. For ordering information, please refer to the product page for this component on www.xilinx.com

Solution

Although these cores are free cores, the 9.2i version of the tools requires licenses for these cores. You can generate licenses from the lounge free of charge.
