relation between vivado version and license

Jump to solution

Hi,

I purchased a ZC706 board several years ago and redeemed the voucher associated with to enable the design tools. This worked fine for the tool version used at the time. If I try to use a newer version eg. Vivado 2018.3, the tool complains about missing feature licenses. Is this expected behaviour ?

Yes, it is expected. The license you get with the board covers you for one year of updates from when it's first activated - so if you activated it in, say March 2015 (when the latest version of Vivado was 2015.1) then you'd be able to update to 2015.2, 2015.3, 2015.4, and 2016.1. If you install a newer version (eg. 2018.3) it'll recognize that your original license is invalid for this version, and instead revert to the automatic (free) WebPack license. This license does not support the Zynq 7045.

Thanks for your reply. If you could also clarify the following lines in my license:

INCREMENT ZYNQ7000_ZC706_EMBD xilinxd 2015.01 permanent uncounted

PACKAGE ZYNQ7000_ZC706_EMBD xilinxd 2015.01

Do these imply that the latest vivado version usable is 2015.01 or 2015.1 ?
