|How to Order|
Xilinx is a leading provider of FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) devices, and provide a comprehensive suite of development tools for FPGA design and development.
The latest Xilinx Xirtex-7 devices (pictured right), are built on a 28nm process and provide up to 2M logic cells, integrated Block RAM, dedicated DSP blocks, multiple gigabit transceivers, x8 PCIe.

License delivery for Europractice sites
Europractice site representatives can generate licenses directly from the Xilinx licensing website:
Generate Xilinx Licenses/Manage Users
Site Reps can also delegate responsibility for managing license from the licensing website by adding additional staff as license administrators.
Vivado was developed from the ground up to improve performance and usability, in particular for large modern FPGA designs. Vivado supports the Series 7 Xilinx devices (Virtex, Kintex, Artix) and beyond.
Vivado is recommended for new designs using these devices.
Also included is the Vivado HLS tool, which provides high level synthesis from C/C++/SystemC for series 7 Xilinx devices.
Users requiring support for older Xilinx devices can continue to use ISE indefinitely with current Europractice licenses.
Vivado HLx System Edition
Vivado is an Integrated Development Environment for Xilinx FPGA design. It supports core functionality including Simulation, Synthesis, Place and Route, and adds additional tools and features including Vivado High Level Synthesis, Power Optimization, ECO, and supports an incremental flow. Vivado also includes DSP development tools, Vivado in circuit logic analyser (ILA) and a software development environment that supports both the ARM processors in Zynq devices and Microblaze.
|Vivado HLS||Previously known as AutoESL, Vivado HLS is a High Level Synthesis tool, allowing synthesis of C/C++/SystemC to RTL.|
|Hardware Debug||Vivado ILA allows on-chip debug by providing visibility of internal FPGA signals, including embedded processor buses, for real time verification of FPGA designs.
IBERT allows Bit Error Rate Testing of integrated transceivers to a greater precision than using external scopes.
|SDK||SDK is a development environment for hardware/software co-design based around the ARM and MicroBlaze processor cores. A license for the 32-Bit MicroBlaze soft IP is also included as part of this package, which can be used with all Xilinx FPGA families.|
|System Generator for DSP||System Generator enables designers to develop high-performance DSP systems for Xilinx FPGAs using MATLAB and Simulink. System Generator, through Simulink, provides a graphical modelling environment for generation of bit-accurate models of FPGA circuits, and automatically generates synthesizable Hardware Description Language (HDL) code. A library of IP for use in Simulink is included with System Generator.|
Xilinx ISE System Edition packageISE System Edition contains a complete suite of FPGA development tools comprising design capture, synthesis, verification and implementation. It includes PlanAhead for IO pin planning, floor planning and design analysis, ChipScope Pro for on-chip debug, EDK and SDK for Embedded development, and System Generator, allowing generation of RTL from DSP designs using MATLAB and Simulink.
Xilinx licenses are generated by the Europractice site representative, or authorized user, through the Xilinx website. The site representative/authorized user can generate floating or node-locked license files as required from the pool of unallocated seats. It is not necessary to specify the type of license (floating/node locked) required when placing an order, only the number of seats required.
Please go to Generate Xilinx Licenses to manage your licenses.
