14.x Licensing - Is floating license borrowing available for Xilinx software?


Does the Xilinx implementation of FLEX licensing allow for the ability to "borrow" a license from their FLEX floating server to use off site?


No, the ISE Design Suite 14.6 implementation of FLEX does not allow for license borrowing.

ISE 14.7 XLCM has Activation based licensing which will enable License borrowing and "trusted storage". However, Activation licenses are not yet available for Xilinx software.

On the product licensing web page, the Create New License page contains a note indicating that Activation Based Licenses will be available.
