USB FLEX ID dongle - where can I get this for Xilinx Design studio for node-locked licensing

Jump to solution

Just bought two Vivado HL Design Suite licenses and want to use the USB dongle to node lock the license, but I cannot seem to find the hardware "USB FLEX ID dongle" anywhere.  Dongle fullfillment at revenera thinks it might be this: 

FLEXNETID-ALA-8626

Can anyone say for certain?

Thanks!

Hi @nosam 

I suspect you want to lock your node-locked licenses to a Dongle-ID, If yes then, A dongle is just an actual transferable ID (Dongle's Host ID) (and not a memory USB stick), e.g.:

When you'd be generating your node-locked license, you'd then select and specify Dongle's Flexid for this license. See the below AR for more details:

https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/42410.html

That way then you'd be able to transfer this dongle together with your license from a PC to a PC and Vivado will then be able to detect and use this license on your different machines. 

Well, typically, FLEX licensing works as long as the dongle is recognized on the system.

Also, Xilinx no longer sells Dongles, Dongles can be purchased directly from Flexera.

For additional information or to order dongles, please contact Flexera.

Flexera's Dongle request e-mail address is: flexid@flexerasoftware.com

Xilinx supports USB dongle licensing on Windows platforms only.

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks and Best Regards,

I am trying to purchase the dongle, but I don't know which one to buy, and so that is the question.  Hardware question - I need a "special" dongle right?  So is there a part number or something to buy the darn thing?
