Licensing issue with vivado - Student

Jump to solution

I am using Vivado for quiet some time and my 30 day free trail is finished and now I am not able to synthesis , implement and generate bit stream. I tried to go online and generate a license, I have generated a license file with all the products available and still I am not able to get those features and now it is not showing anything on my product list.

I am a student and is it possible to get a student license and if it is possible how can I get one. Please let me know if it is not the right place to ask and point me in the right direction.

Thank you for all or any help.

What part or devCard are you targeting, and what version of Vivado are you trying to use?

I have 2019.2 version already in my machine I think I am lacking valid license. I am not sure if downloading a new version will solve it.

Hello @SandeepS ,

As correctly indicated by @bruce_karaffa , some of the Artix-7 FPGAs, such as below, are WebPACK supported devices. So, targeting one of these devices in your design, will not require you to have a valid license in place. No even need to physically log in to Xilinx and generate a Vivado WebPACK license, as the latest Vivado tools (i.e. from Vivado 2016.1 and newer) aren't going to check for a license, again only when you are targeting one of the Artix-7 WebPACK parts in your Vitis/Vivado design.

Artix-7 FPGA

  • XC7A12T, XC7A15T, XC7A25T, XC7A35T, 
  • XC7A50T, XC7A75T, XC7A100T, XC7A200T

For any other larger FPGAs, you'd need a purchased Vivado license.

Hope this helps to clarify regarding your query.

Kind Regards,
