I need to develop a Ethernet driver in VHDL for FPGA, I am using the board spartan6 lx150t for developpment. My client wants a Ethernet driver with a native interface. I read many ducuments of Xilinx on ethernet, finally I found that xps_ethernetlite_v4_00_a is provided at no additional cost with the Xilinx ISE Design Suite Embedded Edition software under the terms of the Xilinx End User License. And I can find the source code of this ip core, so can I say that this IP(xps_ethernetlite_v4_00_a) is opensource? Can I adapt the IP core to my projet? What I will do is deleting the PLB interface of this IP core. If I finaly succeed in simplifying this IP core, can my client use the IP core simplified without any probleme of license?
Thanks a lot
