Licensing - What does a device locked license allow?


A device locked license is usually included with purchased kits and boards (for example SP605, VC707. etc...). 

What does this type of license allow?

Is it possible to use the full ISIM and ChipScope Pro tool with access to other devices?


A device locked license typically includes the following features.

  • Increment Web_Package which gives access to PlanAhead and WebPACK software implementation for WebPACK devices.
  • Increment "Specific Device" which provides additional access to implementation for the locked device.
  • Increment "Design Edition" (Logic Edition, Embedded Edition, DSP Edition depending on the board) which allows access to other design tools.

The device license allows for synthesis and implementation of a design targeted to that specific device.

Bitstream generation is also allowed as long at the device in question is not considered early access in the software version being used.
A device locked license covers all the packages of a device.

For example:

The SP605 Evaluation Kit includes a full-seat of Xilinx ISE Design Suite: Logic Edition device locked to the Spartan-6 XC6SLX45T device.

It allows you access to ISE, PlanAhead, ISIM and ChipScope Pro tools for XC6SLX45T as well as WebPACK devices.
