Intellectual Property (IP) Cores
In this course, the term IP core refers to a reusable unit of logic or circuit design that is an intellectual property of some party. Xilinx and their third party partners provide a rich library of IPs to assist users in developing products. Some provided IPs are free to use, while others may require the user to purchase a license. For more information on IPs, you can visit the Xilinx Intellectual Property Page for more information.
