Existing license renewal donation
If you already have an existing donated license(s) and you received an email notifying that the license will be expiring soon, XUP has created simple license renewal procedure. Please fill out the License Renewal Only Donation form.
Whenever a project, such as a new or improved course or research program, requires programmable logic devices and design software, the Xilinx University Program (XUP) committee will consider requests for a donation of these products to assist the professor in establishing the project.
To be considered for a donation, professors must submit a Donation Request. If you do not have one, you can create an account (login and password) by clicking Enroll Now. Please use academic email address in creating the account.
Purchase vs. donation - what's practical for you?
If you have budget to purchase Xilinx software, development boards, and/or devices, XUP encourages you to do so. We offer significant discounts on Xilinx software and development boards. In some cases, a school might only have some funding, but not enough to obtain everything that is needed for the lab and a partial donation is necessary.
We encourage you to make the choice that you feel is right for your situation. Most importantly, if money is any barrier to your immediate use of Xilinx products, you should request a donation for what you need.
What you can expect?
Every effort will be made to grant your request, however all requests are subject to review and approval by the XUP committee. XUP reserves the right to limit donations and/or deny a request.
We will respond to your application within 3 to 4 weeks. If you do not hear back from XUP within one month, please contact us regarding the status of your application.
