What is this renewal notice?

Where do I get a renewal quote?

Will my license expire?

This answer record details the necessary steps to take to obtain a quote for purchase.


All software and IP core products that are not evaluations include a 1-year maintenance period. This maintenance period entitles the user to any new download versions or updates released during the one year maintenance period. The user who originallylicensed the product receives an expiration e-mail notification 60 and 30 days prior to the maintenance period expiration.

Although the maintenance period expires and the user is no longer entitled to new versions or updates, the current license is still usable and does not expire. The licensed product can still be used to make modifications to designs that are created during the maintenance period.

To purchase a new maintenance period, please contact your local Xilinx Sales Representative or Distributor at:
