Re: can ise lisence compatible to vivado?

Hello @caikankan2006,

 

If this is in relation to the IP Core license, then this is all depending on the version of this IP Core in your design and the version limit of this license file.

Please note that IP version limit is based on the first time the IP Core was released, so it is different to the software version limit.

Therefore, if you are starting a new design in the latest Vivado release and have this 10g mac IP Core (the newest version of this IP Core) added to your design,then the answer is NO, this older IP core license won't work in this case and you'd need to obtain an updated license file for this.

More info regarding version limit can be found in this Answer Record: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/33770.html

 

Also, please note that in order to go through the entire flow in Vivado (such as Synthesis, Implementation, bitstream generation), you'd also need to have a valid Vivado software license file (unless you are targeting one of the WebPACK supported devices in your design, for which no additional Vivado software license is needed).

Therefore, you can open Vivado and under the IP Catalog, if you find the required IP Core, you can right-click on this core and do "View License Status". Here you can then see what's the minimum version limit of the IP Core license for this particular core you need. If the limit version in the lic file (can be found in the INCREMENT line of your license file) is older than the minimum required version limit of the IP Core, then this license won't work in this case.

 

FYI - please note that your design is for the testing purposes only, you can obtain a free full Hardware Evaluation license for this particular IP Core (from www.xilinx.com/getlicenses (under "Evaluation and No Charge Licensing section).

FYI - A LogiCORE IP Core Full System Hardware Evaluation license enables you to run through the entire design flow, including implementation, simulation, and bitstream generation. However, the generated bitstream contains circuitry that disables the design after two to eight hours of operation at the typical clock rate for the core. The actual duration of the operational period varies on a core-by-core basis. To start the device working again, you must reload the bitstream (reset or reprogram the device).
