I have a question regarding Xilinx IP Core license. Currently I'm using a ML605 (Virtex-6) as my I/O controller for features such as data acquisition and control of external devices. I have been taking advantage of Xilinx IP cores such as BlockRAM and PCIe (xapp1052) which makes my work so efficient. Honestly, the PCIe and BlockRAM are pretty much my dominant use of this ML605. I'm thinking of getting a Virtex-6 FPGA chip and putting together DAC, ADC in a single PCB. This is probably not horribly hard thanks to Xilinx open sources for ML605 schematics.
Now the question is, can I still use Xilinx PCIe IP core and xapp1052 if I draw my own PCB with a Virtex-6 FPGA chip? Many thanks in advance.

I believe and assume you would like know that whether you use PCIe IP core on FPGA using ISE ,yes you can use on single die FPGA now coming down to xapp1052 you cannot use the xapp1052 files since the files are designed for specific boards.

As long as the Vivado has the valid licenses you can use the PCIe IP .
if you have any more queries please let me know , if not please close this thread.

Great thanks for the information. So I guess I have to write my own PCIe Tx/Rx machine for data communication between device and host PC, if I build my own FPGA board, although I can still use Xilinx PCIe IP core for the chip.

Yes your right .
