Description

How do I access the Xilinx Product Licensing Site?

Solution

The Product Licensing Site is accessible in various ways depending on your starting point and the type of license being generated.


To get a license for purchased products, follow the link included in your order confirmation email. 


It will provide direct access to an account containing your products entitlements.


For an Activation-based license, the email will direct you to use the Vivado License Manager to obtain a license.

To get a software evaluation license or WebPACK license, please click Vivado WebPACK and Evaluation products.

If you want to evaluate IP products, go to the IP Center and follow the "Evaluate" link on the IP product page of interest or see (Xilinx Answer 38883).

 

From the Vivado License Manager (VLM)

VLM can be opened from in one of the following ways:

1. When the installer finishes, the Vivado License Manager (VLM) will launch in the "Obtain License" mode.
2. From Vivado select Help -> Obtain License.
3. From Vivado select Help -> Manage Licenses.
