Vivado HLS - What are my licensing options? Why do I get @E[LIC-104] Missing required feature [VIVADO_HLS] or @E [HLS-72] Missing required license feature?

描述

What are my licensing options for Vivado HLS? What devices are supported?

Why do I get the following errors?

  • @E [LIC-104] Missing required feature [VIVADO_HLS]
  • @E [HLS-72] Missing required license feature?

解决方案

The licensing scheme for HLS depends on the release of software in use and is described below:


Current Vivado HLS release back to 2015.4:

The Vivado HLS License is based off of the Vivado synthesis license and is not a separate license. When a Vivado edition is licensed, so is Vivado HLS. 

This licensing was first introduced in Vivado 2015.4. Note that the Vivado HLS 2015.4 release was also the last Vivado HLS release to support ISE specific devices.


2015.4 and prior:

Prior to 2015.4, HLS was licensed separately with two different types of license:

1) HLS: Allows synthesis to target devices supported by Vivado (7 Series) . 

  • This license is embedded with 2012.2 or later Vivado System Edition or DSP Edition. 
  • Targeting a pre 7 Series device will result in " @E [HLS-72] Missing required license feature?" error.

AutoESL license does not work for Vivado HLS. If only the AutoESL license is available, Vivado HLS will return the error "@E [LIC-104] Missing required feature [VIVADO_HLS]."

To verify which features (AutoESL, HLS, Vivado_HLS) are supported by your license, start the Xilinx License Configuration Manager and check under the Feature's column or open your license file and search for the AutoESL, HLS, or Vivado_HLS.

Contact your local Xilinx Sales Representative or Distributor to verify entitlement if you cannot locate the license in your Xilinx licensing account.
