Xilinx 13.2 License Download
Xilinx is a leading provider of FPGA and adaptive SoC products, as well as a range of design tools and IP cores. To use Xilinx products, you need to obtain a license file that matches your product edition, device family, and host ID. In this article, we will explain how to download a license file for Xilinx 13.2 products, such as Vivado, SDx, or ISE Design Suite.
Step 1: Install Xilinx 13.2 Products
Before you can download a license file, you need to install the Xilinx 13.2 products that you want to use on your computer. You can download the installation files from the [Xilinx Product Download website]. You can choose between a web installer or a single-file download, depending on your preference and internet speed. The web installer will download only the files that you need for your selected products, while the single-file download will download the entire installation package in one file.
After downloading the installation file, run it and follow the instructions to install the Xilinx 13.2 products on your computer. You can choose between different product editions, such as WebPACK, Design Edition, System Edition, or Embedded Edition, depending on your needs and budget. You can also select the device families that you want to target, such as Versal, UltraScale+, Zynq, or Spartan.
Step 2: Launch Xilinx License Configuration Manager
After completing the installation of Xilinx 13.2 products, the Xilinx License Configuration Manager (XCLM) will start automatically and guide you through the licensing process. You can also launch XCLM manually by selecting Start > All Programs > Xilinx Design Tools > Vivado 2023.1 > Xilinx License Configuration Manager.
XCLM will display a list of licenses that are available for your installed products and device families. You can see the license type, status, expiration date, and version limit for each license. You can also see the host ID of your computer, which is a unique identifier that is used to generate a license file.
Step 3: Obtain a License File
To obtain a license file for your Xilinx 13.2 products, you need to have an account on the [Xilinx Product Licensing Site]. If you do not have an account yet, you can create one by clicking on the "Create Account" button on the top right corner of the website.
There are different ways to obtain a license file, depending on whether you are using a free or evaluation product, a purchased product, or a product voucher.
Free or Evaluation Product Licenses: These are licenses that allow you to use certain Xilinx products or IP cores for free or for a limited time period. To obtain these licenses, you can simply click on the "Get Free Licenses" button on XCLM and follow the instructions. You will need to log in to your account on the Xilinx Product Licensing Site and select the products or IP cores that you want to license. You will then receive an email with a link to download your license file.
Purchased Products Licenses: These are licenses that you have paid for to use certain Xilinx products or IP cores permanently or for a longer time period. To obtain these licenses, you need to have received a notification email with licensing instructions from Xilinx after completing your purchase. You will need to log in to your account on the Xilinx Product Licensing Site and enter the product entitlement certificate (PEC) code that is provided in the email. You will then be able to generate and download your license file.
Product Voucher Licenses: These are licenses that are included with certain Xilinx or Xilinx partner board kits that support Xilinx 13.2 products or later versions. To obtain these licenses, you need to have received a product voucher card with a voucher code inside your board kit package. You will need to log in to your account on the Xilinx Product Licensing Site and enter the voucher code. You will then be able to generate and download your license file.
Step 4: Load Your License File
After obtaining your license file, you need to load it into XCLM to activate your Xilinx 13.2 products. You can do this by clicking on the "Load License" button on XCLM and browsing to the location of your license file. You can also drag and drop your license file into the XCLM window. XCLM will then verify your license file and update the status of your licenses.
You can also copy your license file to one of the following default locations, depending on your operating system:
Windows: C:\Xilinx\.xilinx or C:\.Xilinx
XCLM will automatically scan these locations for license files and load them.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Xilinx 13.2 Products
Once you have loaded your license file, you are ready to use your Xilinx 13.2 products. You can launch Vivado, SDx, or ISE Design Suite from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut and start designing with your Xilinx devices. You can also use the Xilinx IP Catalog to browse and instantiate various IP cores that are compatible with your products and device families.
