IP-TRIETHERNET License

Dear all,

Currently, I am testing the Triple Speed Ethernet (TSE) IP Core for a project. Now, I am very interested in purchasing the license whose Ordering Code is IP-TRIETHERNET for deployment purposes. However, I need to clarify a couple of questions:

1) If I purchase one license for the Stratix V FPGA, can I use the same license for different boards or is the license associated with only one specific Stratix V FPGA?

2) In the future we are planning to have a board with more than one physical ethernet interface. In this case, can we use a single license for instantiating several TSE IPs in the same design?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,
Daniel Pestana.

Hi DanielGP,

 

I am sorry for keep you waiting for long time.

 

 

1) If I purchase one license for the Stratix V FPGA, can I use the same license for different boards or is the license associated with only one specific Stratix V FPGA?

>  IP-TRIETHERNET is a stand alone license. It is not associate to any dev kit. In other word, you can use to any supported devices as mention in  IP-TRIETHERNET user guide.

 

 

2) In the future we are planning to have a board with more than one physical ethernet interface. In this case, can we use a single license for instantiating several TSE IPs in the same design?

> Can you explain further, how do you plan to use the license?

> Are you plan to use fix or floating license?

> Do you plan to use server for this application?

 

Thanks!

Hi, Wani.

 

Thank you for you reply. So, my answers are underlined:

 

1) If I purchase one license for the Stratix V FPGA, can I use the same license for different boards or is the license associated with only one specific Stratix V FPGA?

>  IP-TRIETHERNET is a stand alone license. It is not associate to any dev kit. In other word, you can use to any supported devices as mention in  IP-TRIETHERNET user guide.

>> Perfect, this is what I needed to know. Thank you!

 

2) In the future we are planning to have a board with more than one physical ethernet interface. In this case, can we use a single license for instantiating several TSE IPs in the same design?

> Can you explain further, how do you plan to use the license?

> Are you plan to use fix or floating license?

> Do you plan to use server for this application?

>> Our idea is to use the license for different projects and boards. On one particular project, imagine we have 2 ethernet interfaces, which means that we would need to instantiate the IP-TRIETHERNET twice in the design. With a single standalone license, can we instantiate the IP-TRIETHERNET twice in order to work in both ethernet interfaces?

 

Thank you again for all your support.

Regards,

Daniel Pestana.
