Bought license for TEMAC core limited to Vivado 2018.x?

Jump to solution

Hi,

We have a bought license for the Xilinx TEMAC core. Currently we are using Viv 2018.3 and everything is working fine.

Now if I upgrade to Viv 2019.1, will the TEMAC core NOT generate with our purchased license?
I ask this because of the "version limit" info from the License manager.

@gin_xil ,

Yes, @jribeiro_mog is correct. The Version Limit indicates the end of the warranty period and determines the latest version of Vivado Design Tools & IP that the licesnse is good for. It's typically one year of support. You can refer to AR#33770 for more details.

For what it's worth, that page says that 2018.3 requires a Version Limit of 2018.12 or later and that the 2018.6 license enables only 2018.2 and earlier.

Hi @gin_xil ,

I'm afraid that is indeed the case. You will be able to generate your designs with Vivado until update 2018.3.1 for as long as you want, but that license will be not seen as valid by Vivado 2019 and forward versions.
