EDK driver license

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

Do EDK IP Core drivers come under the same license as the SDK drivers? For example the xuartlite.h file contains the following statement:

 

"* Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy

* of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"), to deal
* in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights
* to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell
* copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is
* furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: [...]"

 

Does this apply to EDK drivers such as the old PS/2 IP core (XPS2) ? The notice in the SDK driver does not state this, it does state however the following:

 

"* This file contains confidential and proprietary information of Xilinx, Inc.
* and is protected under U.S. and international copyright and other
* intellectual property laws.
*
* DISCLAIMER
* This disclaimer is not a license and does not grant any rights to the
* materials distributed herewith. Except as otherwise provided in a valid
* license issued to you by Xilinx, and to the maximum extent permitted by
* applicable law: [...] "

 

I wish to use a modified version of the XPS2 driver for my IP which will be published.

 

Thanks,

Sergiu

Hi @sergiuutcn,

 

That is a legal department related question that cannot be solved by technical department people in a forum post. You will need to contact Xilinx marketing/legal department in order to handle this kind of questions.
