Licensing - Does Xilinx software licensing have a soft or hard license limit for floating licenses?

Description

Does Xilinx software licensing have a soft or hard license limit for floating licenses?

Solution

The count for a Xilinx floating license is a hard limit. If you own 20 seats, and 20 users are using licensed tools at the same time, all the licenses will be in use. If a 21st user tries to run the tool, their attempted license check-out will fail, and the application will not run.
