Hello Intel FPGA Community,
I have been given a run around on how to get the CXL IP License for the R-tile in Agilex FPGA. I posted in different comunites, spend hours on the phone with Mouser, Arrow (One of the Intel support staff suggested that I reach out to Authorized distributors to get the IP License) and No one in mouser or Arrow is able to give me a quote to buy the license for CXL soft Ip.
So I am hoping that you guys will lead me to the correct person who can give me the quote and help with activating the license.
May I know if you have the contact for your local sales representative? If no, may I know where are youu located so that I can get the correct sales representative to contact you.
You can get more information on the CXL IP in https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/details/fpga/intellectual-property/interface-protocols/cxl-ip.html.
Intel FPGA CXL IP requires a separate license purchase. In the recent release of Intel Quartus Prime Design Software, you can get access to two CXL IP variants: Type 2 and Type 3. Here are the specific IP ordering codes to have the local sales person give you a price quote on: IP-CXLTYP2 or IP-CXLTYP3DDR. This CXL IP works with any R-Tile (die rev. B0) based Agilex FPGA device or dev kit. If you are looking to use an Intel Dev. Kit, the specific version I recommend is DK-DEV-AGI027R1BES (web page link for this dev kit: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/details/fpga/development-kits/agilex/i-series/dev-agi027.html.
Before you make a decision to purchase the CXL IP, you can also work with the local sales team to provide you with a free 30-day / 60-day IP evaluation license (which assumes you already have Quartus v22.3 installed) to try out the IP.
