Foundation XVHDL, F1.3/F1.4: Hardware key required for XVHDL feature (Programmable C Key)
Keywords: dongle, key, security, metamor, vhdl
The XVHDL feature of the Foundation F1.x package requires a hardware key for authorization. Note that the XVHDL feature is for the METAMOR VHDL compiler only, NOT the Express compiler. The Express compiler which is an option with F1.4, is licensed by FlexLM.
The XVHDL feature of the Foundation F1.x software is authorized by a hardware key. The rest of the F1.x software is licensed by a FlexLM license file. For more information on setting up the FlexLM license file, see (Xilinx Solution 2003).
New Foundation DS-FND-STV or DS-FND-BSV customers will receive a pre-programmed hardware key with the software.
Existing Foundation DS-FND-STV or DS-FND-BSV customers will simply use their existing hardware key to authorize the XVHDL feature.
