Vivado license for AES-Z7PZ-SDR2-DEV-G


My customer purchased a AES-Z7PZ-SDR2-DEV-G development kit and was surprised to find it did not come with a Vivado device locked license. He is now considering a AES-MMP-7Z045-G which does come with a license. Can someone explain the reasoning why one does and the other doesn't? I understand the smaller devices are covered by the Webpack.

Our target customer for PicoZed SDR was not designers who are new to Xilinx. Therefore we assumed the majority of customers would already own Xilinx tools. This proved to be true. Doing so helped us keep the price of the full kit below $2K USD.

It's strange that this customer started with a SOM that includes RF transceivers and then switched to a non-RF SOM.

The PicoZed™ SDR development package bundles everything required to start your software program-defined
radio (SDR) design. The kit consists of the low-strength, small footprint, rugged PicoZed SDR 2X2
system-on-module (SOM) and a provider card for prototyping with trendy high bandwidth
interfaces like USB, Gigabit Ethernet, SFP+, and RF strength modules. The carrier additionally includes
HDMI, audio, FMC growth and a digicam module interface to enable a number of recent SDR
applications requiring audio/video and embedded imaginative and prescient.
data acquisition is managed underneath Ubuntu Linux walking at the twin ARM-nine processor inside the
Zynq SoC, helping fast statistics trade over Ethernet to MATLAB® and Simulink®. Open
source reference design source code may be downloaded and reused to your design. additionally
protected are the cables, energy resources, and software program required to apply the package right now for
software improvement and application prototype. Supported by robust simulation and code
generation equipment that combine seamlessly with Xilinx Vivado® design Suite, PicoZed SDR
