Buying Alveo u250 license

Hello,

I want to buy a license such that I can compile code for Alveo u250 in Vivado 2019.1.

What is the cheapest way of subscribing a license and how can I subscribe to the license?

Hi @sujoyetc,

The preferred optimal design flow for targeting the Alveo Data Center accelerator card uses the Vitis™ software platform while for development using RTL and HLx you can use Vivado 

To download both Vivado and Vitis, please visit: https://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.html/content/xilinx/en/downloadNav/vitis.html

Please let me know if you still need more assistance.
Thanks,

Hi @romisaas 

The licensing page that you referred to is a generic licensing.

I need a precise weblink to the licensing page for Alveo U250 such that simulation and implementation can be performed using Vivado.

Example: When I bought a Zynq device, I received a node locked license for the bought device. 

Is there a similar way of buying a license for Alveo u250?

Hello @sujoyetc ,

Please note that if you are using the latest Vivado/Vitis tools, targeting any Alveo related platforms, like an Alveo U250, no license is needed in this case.

Please note that Xilinx has decided to remove any licensing checks for the Alveo cards, so they are now classified as any other WebPACK device; so if you'd use the latest Vivado or Vitis tools, and if you'd target an Alveo U250 card, you'd be able to successfully go through the flow and generate bitstream without a licensing check.

Hope this helps.
