ChipScope Voucher

Hi,
I received my ZedBoard kit today. Where is the voucher for chip scope? Is the code on one of the papers that came with the board or is it on the DVD itself?

Thank you for your help.

We have verified an issue

We have verified an issue that left out the ChipScope license voucher.  We apologize for this problem.  We are working on how to get these vouchers to those that have already received kits.  You should still be able to generate your WebPACK license from the Xilinx website, which will give you access to the full Zynq development tools for the 7020 device.  You can also generate a 30-day temp license for ChipScope in the meantime.  Again, I apologize for the issue, and I'll respond back as I learn how we will correct this for those affected.

licensing problems

i have used both the voucher in my box and obtained from david zaffiro to obtain license files. neither allow me to open PlanAhead from ISE 14.2 webpack.
Looking at the .lic files, they differ from the free webpack in that they are node-locked. BUT also in the COMPONENTS= section
free webpack license:
PACKAGE Web_Package xilinxd 2013.08 DF5D8E1A1BDE \COMPONENTS="PlanAhead WebPACK XC7Z010 XC7Z020 XC7Z030 \
V_WebPACK xps_tdp" OPTIONS=SUITE

vouchers generated license:
PACKAGE ZEDWEBPACK_XC7Z020 xilinxd 2013.09 B8FF49B58E1C \
COMPONENTS="null XC7Z020 null null null" OPTIONS=SUITE

my expired 30 day eval license:
PACKAGE System_Edition xilinxd 2013.07 E56896F41D78 COMPONENTS="SDK \
ChipScopePro_SIOTK ChipscopePro ISE ISIM PlanAhead SysGen XPS \
Simulation Implementation Analyzer HLS Synthesis" \
OPTIONS=SUITE

i can't get another eval can i? so i am left with the free webpack, which does not have XPS.
the voucher generated license only have the XC7Z020.

or is there some other reason planahead does not find a license from the voucher generated .lic.
i have emailed david for help.

Install Logic Edition

James,
This license is not getting generated correctly.  I have just sent an urgent email to Xilinx to figure out how to correct this.
The free WebPACK does include XPS for Zynq 7010, 7020, 7030.  However, there have been some installation issues.  The work-around in 14.1 is documented here http://www.zedboard.org/content/ise-141-webpack-install-work-arounds
Although I have not tried WebPACK 14.2 and the Xilinx AR is not updated to reflect 14.2, this may still be a problem in 14.2.  Try installing the Logic Edition, but then license it with your free WebPack license.  You may still get an XPS license error, but simply close it, and then things should work.  You will not be able to use ChipScope until we get the ZedBoard license issue corrected.  I will also look into the 14.2 install issues.

trying work arounds

thanks for the quick response, Bryan.
i will proceed as instructed and be patient for a license remedy.
i understand that this only effects zedboard users without existing paid license, and appreciate your consideration of this matter.

license generation fixed

David and Jim from Xilinx got the license generation fixed. so i can implement with Chipscope cores now. And the PlanAhead problem is resolved. PS still reports license error as before, but allows the Zedboard 7Z020 designs to be worked. This was with 1.4 Lgic edition and only the new license in C:\.Xilinx.

14.2 Logic version.

14.2 Logic version.

Requesting your missing voucher

If you were one of those that received the first shipped kits without the included license vouchers --
 
For Avnet, non-academic customers, please contact david.zaffiro@avnet.com.  He will provide you with a redeemable voucher number via email.
 
For Digilent, academic customers, please contact support@digilentinc.com
 
We were able to intercept the next group of boards, and those will have vouchers included, but it will be outside the ZedBoard box (within the outer box).  After that, the voucher will be included inside the ZedBoard box itself.
 
Sorry again for the inconvenience.
Bryan

I just received my voucher

I just received my voucher from Digilent's support staff and I activate it on the Xilinx web site. Once I activate it, it said the license is only valid for one year. So my question is, are we only entitle to the full version of the software for one year or for as long as have the ZedBoard?

Thanks,
Mao

You are entitled to use the

You are entitled to use the full version of the software indefinitely.  You are entitled to updates to that software for one year.  Since the development is done through WebPACK, this really only pertains to the ChipScope license generated with your voucher.

If you had previously

If you had previously generated the license with the Nulls, you can regenerate the license correctly as follows:

  1. Go to http://www.xilinx.com/getlicense
  2. Select Account
  3. Click Manage Licenses tab
  4. Select the previously generated license in the list -- Zynq-7000 EPP 7Z020 ZedBoard Kit
  5. Click Modify License
  6. Click Next
  7. When you get the Warning, click Continue
  8. Click Next
  9. License is then regenerated.  You can download or check your email.

 
Here is what the Components list should look like in a valid license.
 
COMPONENTS="WebPack XPS_TDP XC7Z020 ChipscopePro_TDP ISIM \
PlanAhead"

Still having chipscope license issue

In planAhead tool when generating bitstream I get the following errors:

[NgdBuild 1317] Using core chipscope_ila_v1 requires a ChipScopePro license. The following blocks are instances of core chipscope_ila_v1:

[NgdBuild 1316] A problem was encountered attempting to get the ChipScopePro license.

I installed embedded edition instead of the logic edition. Does that matter? I was trying out section 3.1.1 from "ZedBoard: Zynq-7000 AP SoC Concepts, Tools,andTechniques A Hands-On Guide to Effective Embedded System Design"

akanojia,

akanojia,

Can you post this question as a separate form post? Since the original question in this post was answered, I do not want your question to get buried.

Thanks.
