Licensing - When do I choose whether to get a floating or node-locked license?


When do I choose whether to get a floating or node-locked license?


The license type for a software license is chosen at the time of purchase.

New customers or customers requiring renewal will need to purchase a license for the Xilinx Software product they will be using. 

When making the purchase, the Software Edition product names are distinguished by license types.

This is reflected in the part number you order (Typically ending in "_FL" for a floating license and "_NL" for a Node-Locked license).

The LogiCORE IP license is chosen when the license is generated.
