What is ITAR and what is Xilinx Technical Support's policy on receiving ITAR controlled files?
ITAR, or International Traffic in Arms Regulations, is a set of government regulations administered by the US Department of State designed to regulate the import and export of defense related products, technology and services.
Therefore, special care must be given to the handling of any files which contain ITAR-controlled information.
Xilinx Technical Support is committed to handling such files in an export compliant manner.
However, exchanging export-controlled files is only intended to be a last resort for debug purposes as there are limited support options available with export-controlled files.
