Coexistence of Xilinx tools for different LV FPGA versions

Hello,

 

I am preparing a virtual machine with XP, LabVIEW 2012 SP1 for ARM and FPGA and LabVIEW 2015 SP1 with FPGA. I would like to install:

LabVIEW 2012 SP1 FPGA Xilinx Tool ISE 13.4 (for the LV2012sp1)

LabVIEW 2015 SP1 FPGA Xilinx Tool ISE 14.7 (for the LV2015sp1)

 

Can both coexist or need I install only one of them?

 

Thanks in advance,

Hi golubovski,

 

you could easily setup two virtual machines…

Indeed... Yet, can they coexist at same time on same machine?

Hi golubovski,

 

this is the NIFPGA folder for my LV2017 installation:

I guess the other Xilinx compilers will also get their own subfolder…

Thank you Gerd,

 

Another issue - Licencing!? Does the Xilinx tool need activation (serial asked for at the beggining of ionstallation), or what are the limitations - trial period, functionality...? I cannot find any info in the NI website on how the "activation" reflects FPGA compilation process, and how is the LICense obtained for LabVIEW FPGA use.

 

Thanks,

R

Hi golubovski,

 

those Xilinx compilers come with the LabVIEW-FPGA module.

The licenses for those compilers are included in your license fee which you paid for the LabVIEW-FPGA module…

(You don't need to activate the Xilinx tools seperately when installing and activating your FPGA module.)
