create edif for purchased Xililnx IP (temac)

Jump to solution

Hello - Sorry up front if this is the wrong board.  I have purchased the temac license for a project.  I have a user/designer that does not have a license, can I create a edif of the temac core, so they can't modifiy it at all but still be able to generate a bit stream so they can work other aspects of the FPGA RTL design?  Or is that a violation of the license?

Thank you,

Scott

Hello @sallwine ,

Please note that no matter what, the person who'd need do generate bitstream, would need a set of required licenses based on the IP cores that are in the design, and also a Vivado software license required too, as otherwise your designer will have licensing issues in generating bitfiles.

In relation for them not to be able to modify the IP, you can protect your IP, by encrypting your IP. See https://www.xilinx.com/products/intellectual-property/ip-encryption.html for more info. I believe this is what you are looking for?

Hope this helps.
